Next week is the 100th Anniversary of Children's Book Week and we are so excited to celebrate for the second year by donating books to our Milbank Schools.
This year we decided to host our very own Whimsy Book Awards with the students and let them tell us which books are their favorites. We have been carefully selecting the books we wanted to add to this year's list. All of the books have been published after May 2018. Some of the books on our list were just published this month!
We will be delivering our books to Koch Elementary, St. Lawrence, Milbank Middle School and Milbank High School next week and the voting will begin. The voting will run through May 17, 2019. We will announce our winners May 22, 2019. All of the kids that vote will be entered into a drawing for prizes and we will holding a drawings for a few special prizes to the teachers in the Milbank schools that choose to participate.
Here is a look at the books for each grade level that they will be voting on this year.

We are so excited to finally see some signs of Spring in South Dakota after a VERY, VERY LONG Winter. We decided we needed to freshen things up at Whimsy. On our market trip this winter we spent a lot of time searching for the perfect Home product lines to add to our shop.
Last week we introduced three new lines to Whimsy and the feedback has been amazing! We can't wait to continue to introduce new products. It is our goal to continue to add different products to keep this area new and ever changing.
We are so fortunate to have the expertise of Abigail Barragan to buy and design this space. She will continue to keep her eye on the newest trends and out of the box design.
You can check out any of our new home line products in our shop. Most items are available to ship, however, some of the larger items can only be picked up in the store.
Stop by Whimsy on Main to see this beautiful new addition and stay tuned for more!
