What We're Reading in the Children's Section

Welcome to our Children's Section! As one year turns into the next, it's a good time to take stock of ... well, of our stock. So we list on this page the cream of the crop, our favorite books of the year, from picture books for the youngest readers to teen titles for near-adults.

Our children's section is replete with story times, playhouse, gifts, and curated books for kids of all ages. Bring your kids by to visit us in person. We love to get to know a child's personal tastes and watch their love of reading grow over the years!
