Testimonials

I cannot stop saying enough great things about this bookstore. As an African-American woman with African-American children, positive representation is so important. This bookstore is the epitome of all positive representation, from the shelves filled with books featuring Black children and the fact the owner is a Black woman, it's definitely what you want children to see.

The bookstore is intimate, quaint, and well organized with books for various children's age groups.

I'm so happy it's in existence and that it can have such a positive impact on children and culture.

The best bookstore! They have a great selection of children’s books that you can pick up or ship. I got some books from them for my baby shower and they were SO CUTE. There is always a great selection of both classic children’s books and also more modern ones to order. Their customer service cannot be beat! I always recommend them to anyone looking for a gift for a little babe.

I recently visited on a short trip for a conference. This place is INCREDIBLE. I wanted to buy all the unique books for my kids! The owner was super personable and friendly, offering her recommendations to me. This place is highly appealing to kids and families. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to shop for a great book for kids. You will have a hard time choosing!
