There is something wonderful about heading out to an actual brick and mortar bookstore. You get the benefit of an experienced staff that know the ins and out of every book on their shelves. Although most book purchases now happen online or in mega-bookstores, there are still wonderful places for children and parents to go to find books for kids of all ages.
The knowledgeable staff are there to help you find the perfect book for your child or as a gift (we love a book for a birthday present!). The experience of heading to a small, local bookstore is a great thing to share with your kids. And we love supporting these smaller, cozier, local businesses.
