NEW YORK MILLS, NY – A local independent children’s book store is collecting pajamas for kids in need this holiday season.

The TreeHouse Reading & Arts Center, located on Main Street in New York Mills, hosted a Llama Llama Pajama Party Saturday.

Children of all ages were invited to stop by and drop off a pair of new PJ’s for the little ones.

While there, they enjoyed some hot chocolate and tried their hands at making some Llama Llama Red Pajama crafts.

Random House, the publisher of the Llama Llama book series, will collect the pajamas and distribute them – along with a free book – to kids in need.

Joanna Robertson, the owner of TreeHouse, says, “We just want to make sure kids have something warm to wear when they go to bed, and we love the connection with having that book to read. There’s also that family time too. Being able to sit and read with your kids and being able to encourage that bedtime routine.”

The TreeHouse started collecting the pajamas on November, 30 and continue to do so through December, 18.
