Missy Barrett's Adventures

The amazing adventures of a fictional child

Fun At Emery’s 5 & 10

I love it when they day I’ve been waiting for finally gets to be the day I’m at and today, the day I’m at is the “Pinwheels and Pearls” book reading and signing day at Emery’s 5 & 10 General Store at The Island in Pigeon Forge!  Mostly I can hardly wait to hear what part of the book is going to get read this afternoon.  There’s even going to be “Pinwheels and Pearls” book for sale so if you don’t have your very own copy yet, you can get your very own copy at the book reading today!  Isn’t that great?  I think it is!

After, if you have or get a copy of “Pinwheels and Pearls” you can start collecting stamps and stickers for the Pinwheels and Pearls Scavenger Hunt Contest.  If you don’t know what that’s all about, you can read all about it by clicking HERE.

Anyway, there’s 6 places at The Island that you can collect stamps and stickers from so already if you come to the book reading today, you can just go get those 6 stamps and stickers for your book and you’re pretty close to having half the stamps and stickers you can get.  Here’s all the places you can get stamps or stickers from at The Island.

  1. Arcade City
  2. Cosmic Pen
  3. Doc’s Magic Shop
  4. Nourish Natural Bath Products
  5. Pepper Palace
  6. Sweet

If you get all those 6 stamps and stickers, on June 2 when you go to Relay For Life at Patriot Park and you go to the Kids’ Zone Tent, Elyse Bruce will give you 6 numbered tickets for a chance to win a prize on that day.  

So I hope you’re going to come to the “Pinwheels and Pearls” book reading and signing this afternoon because it’s going to be superly fun and plus there’s going to be some prizes to give away and great stuff like that.  Besides who wouldn’t want to be at The Island on a great day like today when the weather is so nice and you can do so many neat things all at one place?  Remember to come for the fun and stay for the excitement.  See you there!

Build-A-Bear Has Heart

Today on “To The Letter” I’m sharing a letter I just got from the amazing people over at Build-A-Bear.  Just so you know, that’s the place my mom and me got Missy Bear (and her outfits) and you guys know Missy Bear from some of the pictures I already posted here and on my Facebook Fan Page.

My mom said that as awesome as the letter is, I should do some research to find out just how much  more awesome it is and when I did some research, I couldn’t believe my own eyes!  The lady that started Build-A-Bear started it not so long ago (but longer ago than how old I am) in 1997 and she started it in St. Louis (that’s in Missouri).  Fast forward only 20 years and there’s more than 400 Build-A-Bears all over the world.  How cool is that?

She’s on a lot of boards that care about people like the Teach For America National Board and the local St. Louis regional board of the National Board of Donorschoose.org.

Also, Build-A-Bear has a foundation and this is what I read on their website:  “All grants are funded by the Build-A-Bear Foundation whose mission is to add a little more to life by inspiring kids to be Helpful, Empowered, Accepting, Respectful, and Team players.”

I love that their inspiration makes up the letters of the word HEART.

On top of all that, Build-A-Bear has a Bear Hospital so if ever your bear gets hurt or lost, the Build-A-Bear Bear Hospital can get the right kind of help to get fixed or found.

Now that you know more about Build-A-Bear, here’s the awesome letter they sent me and all because I’m trying to do my kid best work to help Relay For Life raise awareness and money to help people!   Build-A-Bear even gave me a honorary title.  Read this letter to find out what it is!
