FREE Books Come To Life Event! I Plus an appearance by “Olivia” the Pig


Come one, come all to the Simon Kidgit Club Books Come to Life event taking place this Saturday, February 28 at three locations in Orange County!  Experience the magic of reading with your whole family.

The Brea Mall, Westminster Mall and The Shops at Mission Viejo are each hosting an annual Book Blast event and inviting parents and children to bring books to life through special read-aloud sessions, giveaways and story-inspired activities.

The events will be taking place at Orange County Simon Malls at the following locations and times:

  • The Shops at Mission Viejo: Event runs from 10 a.m. to noon on the center’s upper level near the Play Area.  Book Blast event activities will kick off with an exciting read-aloud session of the “Olivia” book series, followed by a character appearance from “Olivia” the pig herself, who will pose for photos with families.  Children’s crafts and special retailer activities will be available as well.
  • Westminster Mall: Event runs from 10 a.m. to noon on the center’s lower level in Target Court.
  • Brea Mall: Event runs from noon to 2 p.m. in Center Court.

Simon is also teaming up with Better World Books to provide Kidgits Club members who attend the event with a pre-loved book and Kidgits seat cushion to take home, while supplies last.

In addition, families are encouraged to bring a gently used book to the event at The Shops at Mission Viejo, to be donated to a local charity.

The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8.  Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.

Kidgits Club members receive a variety of goodies, including a Kidgits Club T-shirt, membership card, birthday card and gift, discounts and scheduled activities.  For more information about the Simon Kidgits Club, visit
