1:00-1:30                 Presentation and conversation with Charlesbridge

Charlesbridge is looking forward to chatting with booksellers about their thoughts on formats and sections for ages 2-5. This pre-elementary group can be a sweet spot for board and picture books alike, but we’d love to know what really makes a book stand out for the stroller set and the preschool crowd for Indies. Do you find a board book with a larger trim size turns more quickly than a smaller one? What are your customers picking up as a gift? Are you loving the formatting bells and whistles like padded covers and embossed foil? What are you seeing hit the registers the most?
