Simon® malls are welcoming families to experience the magic of reading at the mall.
The Simon Kidgits Club® is hosting its annual Book Blast event and inviting parents and children to bring books to life through special read-aloud sessions, giveaways and story-inspired activities.
Simon is also teaming up with Better World Books to provide each child who attends the event a pre-loved book and bookmark to take home, while supplies last.
