Children's Books

Children are made readers in the laps of the parents - it’s never too soon to start turning those pages, and never too late to discover the magic of books.

Here is a selection of books for younger humans, great epics and small adventures, new friends and lands and experiences for readers age 0 and up!

Books to inspire and beguile, to encourage new generations to think and engage and connect with the world in warmer, kinder, more curious ways.

These books (listed alphabetically) are just a snapshot of those we have in our small but mighty kids corner - if you can’t see what you’re after please do give us a shout by email, phone or drop in and we can check the shelves or order in for you!

At checkout you have the option of postage or free click & collect if you’re local to the bookshop.

NB: Broadly speaking, board Books are aimed at ages 0-3yrs, picture books 3-6yrs, first chapter books are 6-8yrs and our ‘middle grade books are 8-12ish - but all kids read differently and take to books in different ways at different ages, there is no wrong age or way to read a book so please note that where we’ve specified an age it is for guidance only!
