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!
