If you buy English language books,
we’d be grateful if you’d buy them from us.
When you do so, you support a local, family-run business. Remember, online vendors can’t host author readings,
kids’ storytimes, or writing workshops!

Kids Holiday Books!

From board books for babies to picture books
and songbooks to timeless classics,
this year we have hundreds of kids' Christmas books
as well as a good selection of Hanukkah books.

We have so many that we cannot display them all
so please feel free to ask us to see them.

And for those kids who like to pick out their own books,
you can purchase our holiday-themed gift certificates.
