Brookline Patch Column: Think Globally, Shop Locally

In our latest The Brookline Parent column at Brookline Patch, I recommend shopping locally for your gifts this holiday season. As Nomi and I (and Muffin and Squeaker) live in Brookline, I focus on Brookline stores. Three of the stores – Brookline Booksmith, The Tiny Hanger, and New England Comics – provided some specific recommendations for gifts for toddlers, and I've included them in the article. Other stores I mention include The Children's Book Shop, Magic Beans, Henry Bear's Park, and Eureka Puzzles and Games.

Here's the link to the column this week, Think Globally, Shop Locally. Enjoy!
