Honor a Friend and Give the Gift of Reading with Boston Children’s Museum Tribute Bookplate.

Books play an important role in many of the Museum’s exhibits and programs. In Countdown to Kindergarten, a rotating set of books helps to prepare children for school; in Construction Zone, children can read about fixing a broken vehicle or building, and stories located in the Boston Black exhibit prepare them for a day of shopping. Celebrate a special friend or loved one by purchasing a tribute bookplate and in doing so you will give the gift of reading to the thousands of children who visit the Museum each year. When you participate in our tribute bookplate program, a bookplate with your personalized message will be installed in one of the books circulating in the Museum. Notification of the gift, as well as a copy of the tribute bookplate will be sent to the honoree letting them know you recognized them in this special way.

Boston Children’s Museum Tribute Bookplate is the perfect way to:

  • Celebrate a birthday, Mother’s or Father’s Day
  • Thank a teacher, caregiver, mentor, or coach
  • Remember a parent, grandparent, or special friend
  • Recognize an organization, club, or group that’s made a difference in your world

Boston Children’s Museum bookplates are available with a gift of $25.
