babyGap presents Peter Rabbit


Yesterday, Gap introduced a limited-edition collection for babyGap inspired by Beatrix Potter and her Tale of Peter Rabbit.

And to celebrate the collection, Gap is hosting a special reading series for children and parents on January 26th at select babyGap stores around North America (Toronto, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington D.C., for example.) During the events, there will be a reading of Emma Thompson’s 2012 sequel, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, as well as themed activities and snacks.

I’m excited to say that I’ll be reading at the Valley Fair babyGap!

Back when I was writing BabyMine, I shared a video introducing Milk+Bookies, a non-profit organization that exposes young children to charitable giving by facilitating book donation events. Gap has partnered with Milk + Bookies, to host in-store book drives where shoppers can donate their literary favorites for others to learn and enjoy. All books collected through the book drives will be donated to localBoys & Girls Clubs.

So, if you’re in the area, please stop by with your little one–and bring a book to donate!

Let’s Discuss

  1. I was in Gap yesterday and wanted to buy ALL of this line…despite the fact that I do not have a baby (nor will I be having one any time soon) because it is beyond cute! So cool to be involved Ashley :)

  2. What a great event, Ashley! Will you post an update with your thoughts after it happens?
    I take issue with them calling H&T a “mommy blog” because it’s so much more, but I guess the moniker targets the correct crowd.

    • Yes… Can’t say I’m a fan of the moniker either, but I suppose I agree about the targeted audience. I’ll let you know how it goes! Haven’t read aloud to a group of kids in years–not since I was a substitute teacher.
