Excellent book store
May 2019
Knowlegable and helpful staff, great selection of kids books from babies to teens and up. Also have some toys, games and super cute stuffed animals. They have storytime that is wonderful for little ones, check for schedule. I have found some beautiful and fun books and gifts for my grandkids here.
They will also gift wrap your purchases with lovely gift wrapping
You can stop by and browse for about an hour or less, but if you bring kids with you they may want to stay and play in the little back area too.
- Shop local and support this business!

Toddlers reading time
Jan 2019 • Family
We take our grand kids for reading time in the mid mornings. It has lots of books and activities for sale for appropriate age groups. The staff is more than helpful to select and check out the items. It is a happy place to be.

Love this bookstore
Sep 2018 • Solo
After reading positive reviews on the bookshop, I went to check it out .
Indeed it is a lovely , big and friendly bookstore. I thought it was only for the toddlers but they also have books for the teens and adults, games, gifts. I picked a book for my grand niece and the friendly staff did a nice wrap for me, paying a little for lovely wrapping paper .

Wonderful, wonderful children's book store
Mar 2018 • Solo
The staff here is very helpful. My grandson loves books about trucks, and they have a whole section dedicated to things that move--trucks, trains, boats, planes. Since I am little tired of reading about trucks, they were very helpful in assisting me in picking out a couple of other books that are not truck related! Highly recommend.

Fun on a rainy day!

This is a place where children and parents are welcome to explore and discover the highest quality books and toys. The sales team is friendly and supportive and the merchandise is well chosen and arranged with age appropriateness in mind.
The perfect place to shop for kids gifts and allow them to roam around the space
engaging in a wide range of topics form science to Harry Potter.

A treasure in San Carlos
Aug 2016 • Solo
Take the kids! The atmosphere of this book store is welcoming, the staff is knowledgeable and you will enjoy. As a go to place for gifts, the display tables change and many times are put together by themes. Local books, travel, things to do with children. The books are laid out by ages and the Reading Bug has reading time, guest authors, places to sit and look at books and GIFT WRAPPING. There is also a subscription service, so if you have a new Mom or Dad, you can have a selection of books delivered to their home each month. I did this with my daughter who was thrilled with books for her new baby.

Stopped by the Reading Bug twice this summer to pick up books for grandkids away at summer camp. Great selection.

I hear they did a fabulous science "lecture" series for very young kids.
