What is Love?

What is Love?As your community book and toy store, we see firsthand the power of positive connections in the generosity of you, our customers. Each February, we celebrate you by sponsoring a give-back campaign. This year's drive is inspired by the picture book Love, Z by author/illustrator Jessie Sima (author of Not Quite Narwhal and other beloved children's books). The book tells the story of a robot named Z who embarks on an adventure to discover what "love" means after finding a message in a bottle singed, "Love, Beatrice."

The nonprofit recipient of this year's campaign is Carolina Hill, a transitional shelter in Marshfield whose mission is to provide safe haven, support, and guidance to homeless families as they strive to rebuild independent lives. During the month of February, Buttonwood will donate 40% of all sales of Love, Z to Carolina Hill, AND we also invite you to post a note on our love bottle, helping us answer the question, "What is love?" We'll kick off the campaign this Friday at 10:00 am Story Time and Crafts with a reading of Love, Z. Visit the store, and share your love this February!
