Second Star to the Right is a new and gently-loved children’s and young adult bookstore.

We also offer parenting books, journals, and a selection of books in Spanish from infant to Young Adult.

Owned and operated by former teachers, we pride ourselves on assisting customers with knowledgeable and unique book choices. In this digital world, we help keep children with their arms around books and ears listening to the magic of stories.

In addition to our wide selection of books, we also offer a fun assortment of toys! Our Toy Room opened in May 2016 and has expanded over the past months to include educational and sustainable toys and dress up items that inspire imaginative play. We also offer tutoring services through high school. Be sure to stay up to date on all of our author visits, special events and themed Storytimes by viewing this month’s Event Calendar! Join us for Storytime every day at 10:30am. We look forward to seeing you very soon!

This lovely bookstore is our second home. We love the staff! They adore our little one and always make the best recommendations for his age and current interests.

Wow! What an awesome children's bookstore! My two boys absolutely love this place. We live in the Highlands-Berkeley Neighborhood & frequent Tennyson often on our bikes/scooters...

Today we came for storytime with Belle. It was my first time and it certainly won't be the last. The staff were all amazing. Marc went above and beyond, though. He offered a ton of great suggestions and took my daughter out front to play with sidewalk chalk while I payed. I rarely leave reviews but this place was fantastic!
