“If you have kids, this is where you want to stop/ shop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2010

This place just opened and it is a fantastic book shop, ideal for kids. Clean, really well laid out, and a great, generous selection for children of all ages, from babies to teenagers. Really what a downtown book store (remember those?) should be. Cozy, and the books are the same prices as Borders, so why not shop downtown and support a local business? (I am not affiliated with this store in any way, but I am local, and would like to see this business [and other local businesses] thrive. I want to be able to keep bringing my kids here! Selfish, I know...)
Some mention should be made of the toys as well. They have toys that are locally made, high quality stuff. So, things that you wouldn't (or couldn't) find at other places like the Target, Walmart or Toys R Us.
