Welcome to Children’s Book World!
Children’s Book World is an independent, full-service children’s bookstore featuring a comprehensive inventory, knowledgeable staff, and exciting events. Children’s Book World opened its doors for the first time in July, 1989—and now, over twenty-five years later, we’re going strong!
February 3rd, 2:30pm
at Friends’ Central School
1101 City Avenue
Wynnewood, PA 19096
We are thrilled to host Marley Dias , the amazing young woman who started the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign! She’ll be sharing about her new book, Marley Dias Gets It Done (And So Can You) and speak to kids about her passion for making our world a better place, and how to make their dreams come true!
In this accessible “keep-it-real” guide, Marley explores activism, social justice, volunteerism, equity and inclusion, and using social media for good. Drawing from her experience, Marley shows kids how they can galvanize their strengths to make positive changes in their communities, while getting support from parents, teachers, and friends to turn dreams into reality. Focusing on the importance of literacy and diversity, Marley offers suggestions on book selection, and delivers hands-on strategies for becoming a lifelong reader.

Each ticket comes with ONE pre-signed copy of Marley’s book and two admissions. Attendees are welcome to take their picture with Marley after the event.
In an effort to help Marley with her mission to bring books featuring black female protagonists to school libraries we are partnering with Friends’ Central School in accepting donations of new children’s books that will go to
Anderson Elementary School in West Philadelphia.
