Our physical store will be closed until further notice. Check back for updates, and in the meantime, explore our online offerings – gift cards, online ordering, audio, e-books, and more!

Hello Friends!
Here at Children’s Book World, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our #1 priority. Governor Wolf has requested that all non-essential retail stores remain closed.

Therefore, we will be extending the closing of our physical store.
We will miss seeing all your lovely faces, but it is important to us to do what is best for the community and to be part of the solution.

Our events are postponed at this time and will be rescheduled for a time when everyone can comfortably participate.

Although we will be closed, there are new ways you can purchase books from us — online ordering, audio books, and e-books!

New from Suzanne Collins:
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

It feels like we have been waiting forever to get our hands on the newest novel from Suzanne Collins — and it is finally here! The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will revisit the world of Panem sixty-four years before the events of The Hunger Games, starting on the morning of the reaping of the Tenth Hunger Games.

In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The odds are against him. He’s been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined — every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute … and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.
