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, thirty years later, we’re going strong!

Children’s Book World has been bringing together parents and children, teachers and classmates, authors and illustrators and above all, stories and imagination for over 21 years. Sharing the joy of reading is our passion and we strive to make our store the meeting place for just that.

Whether you’re a child, a parent, an educator, or a book lover, you’ll see the difference that quality makes in our selection, our staff, and our service.
