Dedham Book Store Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

The Blue Bunny turns 10 years-old this weekend.

With Kindles and NOOKs sales on the rise and  local and big chain book closing, the Blue Bunny in Dedham keeps doing business.

The Dedham Square children’s toy and  book store turned 10 years-old this weekend, and owner

Peter Reynolds said this anniversary is more special than ever. 

“ We survived two years of construction,” Reynolds said.  “We plan to be one of the last physical book stores.”

To celebrate its birthday, the Dedham Square shop is holding a VIP party for publishers on Friday night and holding an in store raffle for the public on Saturday afternoon.  Children and parents will be able to enter the raffle to win passes to the Children’s Museum and Museum of Fine Arts.

“We think children’s books might never go away,” Reynolds who is also a children’s author and illustrator. “ A children’s book  is closer to a teddy bear than a novel.  It’s something to hold.  Physical  objects for kids are really important. To actually be able to hold it and a parent share it.” 

As a thank you to the town, the Blue Bunny is also paying for Dedham Square parking. Not only will the  shop pay for the parking receipts of  Dedham Square parkers, but they will also double it.
