Children’s Book World

Best Children’s Book Store, August 2014

Whether your kid is three or 13, into puppies or Greek mythology, the staff at
Children’s Book World can make a recommendation, or several. Their knowledge is impressive; they seem to have read (and to recall the particulars of) every children’s and young adult book ever written. Special sections on subjects such as divorce, new babies in the house (aka siblings!), and moving are noteworthy. Saturday mornings feature a rotating lineup of free entertainment: storytime sessions, puppet shows, and musical acts. Complimentary giftwrapping is also available, a boon for time-strapped parents.
