Welcome to our new webpage and our very first blog post. Our hope is to provide monthly updates on what is happening at the store and new books that will be hitting our shelves. We will also provide staff picks and recommendations of some of our favorite things in the store.

We (Michael & Jody) became the new owners of Fundamentals in November of 2018. Jody is a Speech Therapist by trade, and has always loved reading picture books with her students and her two sons. Now she enjoys being in the store and learning new things everyday! Michael is an airline pilot who flies the friendly skies most of the time, but enjoys being in the bookstore on his "days off". Our two boys, Jakob and Lukas "help" us from time to time by stocking shelves, getting receipts, and scanning items.

A few of our family's favorite books include: Mother Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins, anything by Mo Willems and Sandra Boynton, as well as classics like Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, Good Night, Moon, I Love You Through and Through, and Steam Train Dream Train. We are becoming more familiar with Young Adult titles, so please be patient as we explore this new world!

Thank you for supporting your local independent bookstore, and we look forward to seeing you soon! Keep an eye on our FaceBook page for up to date events like Story Time and Book Club.
