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!

Amazing Online Author Events!

Dear Friends,

We at Children’s Book World are thinking of all of you and your children, many of you trying to implement school at home. Not easy, we know! We want to help by sharing some information.

We’ve been hearing from many authors and illustrators who are stepping up to help our children while schools are closed. The authors and illustrators are offering daily or weekly read-alouds, discussions about their books, art lessons, presentations about writing, and some are offering live-time question and answer sessions.

We want to make sure you hear about all that’s being offered. To that end, we are trying to maintain a listing of the amazing author offerings we hear about. Feel free to share this information with anyone who might benefit from it–and let us know about the things you have found and are enjoying!

Thank you for your support.
