Monkey See, Monkey Do children's bookstore in Clarence, N.Y., will be honored by the town's Chamber of Commerce as 2018 Small Business of the Year. The Bee reported that "the criterion for selection of the individuals and business is an unselfish devotion to improving the quality of life in the Clarence community."
Kim Krug opened Monkey See, Monkey Do in 2009 with her mother, Kathleen Skoog. "The bookstore's tagline, 'the little bookstore with big ideas,' proved prescient. Since opening, thousands of families have visited the store, participated in literacy-based camps, enjoyed interactive princess tea parties and celebrated book-themed birthday parties," the Bee noted. In 2012, the bookshop received the Women's National Book Association Pannell Award.
