Ever since my 4 1/2 year old grandson was born, I have loved patronizing this store! The staff have always been extremely helpful in trying to find both books and toys that will bring joy to him. I have especially enjoyed the opportunity to meet authors and buy signed editions of books I think he will love in the future. This is a grand place to spend some time!

We just moved to town and we are very excited to have a children's bookstore nearby (and with such great reviews). Unfortunately the owner and staff make for an extremely uncomfortable shopping experience. They hover and stare and give off some real bad vibes. I try to make conversation, but they are incapable of being nice. I am bummed, because we love buying books for our little one and we love shopping local. I hope the owner and her staff read this and reflect on the way they treat costumers. Be nice & don't judge a book by its cover.

I have visited this store several times over the past year, and every single time my daughter and I get treated like crap. It is a children's bookstore, but the second my daughter reached for a book, the owner told her to "please not touch." My daughter is a very respectful child, and would never go running around ruining books. Just today I went to ask the owner a question, and right after I started talking, her employee interrupted me. What does Alex do...she holds her had inches from my face and says "SHHHHH," while she answers her employees question!!! I had a stack of books I was going to purchase, and I put them down and walked out. I love to support small, local businesses, and make sure I do so every chance I get. But I will never give this store one more penny of mine. They treat children horribly and are all around rude people.

Although we live in Chicago, this bookstore is always on our list of "must visits" when we're in town to see the grandparents. Over the past 17 years and at least 50 visits, we've relied on Alex's expertise and recommendations. This store, but especially Alex, are top notch. Amazing selection, informed staff, personalized service. This place is a gem.

Preferential treatments are being given by the color of your hair and skin. If you are dark skinned or Asian decent you would get the treatment as listed below with dirty looks and cold shoulders. This is especially from the owner.

I went to this bookstore recently with my little girl hoping to find some books for her. Unfortunately the salespeople must hate children. They never smiled and never helped us. In fact, when my daughter picked up a book she was interested in they gave us a dirty look as if she wasn't allowed to touch anything in the store!!! What are these people doing working in a children' bookstore? We will never go again.

If youre looking for a childrens bookstore that has a great selection, layout and expertise, this is the place. The store is extremely kid friendly, and the staff really knows childrens books. In addition to books, the store offers a great stuffed animal selection. As you might expect with a high-quality childrens bookstore, this place has great story hours for young readers.

Whale of a Tail features book signings for children. The author of "Stellaluna" made a notable impression with her reading. I also met several other's like Audrey Wood. I like to take advantage of meeting children's book author's so I can share the experience with my class. Whale of a Tail has an amazing selection of books for young children.

This is a great bookstore for kids. THe selection is great and the staff is very helpful. THey have offered to special order books that they do not have in stock. Parking is ok, as it is in a big plaza,, but well worth going.

PROS: Great staff and selection
CONS:

I like this store when I shop for my nephews. They have lots of childrens toys, books, and games. What impresses me most is the selection of stuffed animals. I'm a stuffed animal lover myself, so I go here a lot. The location is right at the University Center, so there are other neat little shops and places to eat around the area. Parking is great as well.

Though the store is on the small side, they have a good selection of kid's books and are very kid friendly. You can browse for a while with your little ones and not get the evil stare. The store is also located in a small shopping center, so you can grab an ice cream too and make an afternoon of it.

This bookstore is such a great place to take your young readers. The layout is extremely attractive to kids, and they have more kid books than you can imagine were even written! They also offer storytimes for the little ones. Its in a great location with lots of other shopping and food choices as well. You can make this a day of lunch and book shopping!

The big chain bookstores try hard for your buck, but this is the place to breing your child if they are a reader. Alex, the owner takes pride in her selection and recommendations, and she doesn't miss.
