What a lovely and intimate book store! I've shopped there multiple times for birthday gifts for my nieces and nephews and each time the sales associates are able to guide me to the best books based upon the child's reading level and preferences. The sales people are very friendly and knowledgeable- they have read many of the children's/young adult books and provide great insight into what kids are into these days and what is a good read. As for my purchases, I've had many enjoyable conversations with my nieces/nephews, always telling me how much fun and interesting the books are.

Pros: Very attentive staff, wonderful handpicked selection and fun cupcake cafe attached

Cons: There could be a bit more of a selection

I went in there the other day with my kids and the store has not gotten any new stock in at least a year...of course there is the new book here and there, but the shelves do not change much.

I use to love the store before they moved from next door a few years ago....the owner has too big of an ego and not enough vision.

I find that Barnes and Noble has better, more and current stock, plus you can order books there as well.

It's like a deja vu of your childhood when walking through this store. The entire decor is amazing: carpeted and as if you're walking through your own little storybook. All of the childhood classics can be found here: Curious George, The Velveteen Rabbit, and a lot of not-so-famous ones as well. The store contains old (including antiques for children's book collectors) and new titles. It's a great place to just walk around and browse.

This children's bookstore is great for the kids in your life or for the big kid in all of us. They have a unique and varied selection to choose from, so it's a great place to browse. Books of Wonder is a great place to find gifts, as they stock books, as well as toys, games and cards.

Along with Bank Street Books this shop is the other tremendous children's store in New Yori City. They've been around for years and sell everything from the newest releases to rare first printings of the Oz books. They have partnered with cupcake cafe to have one of the great book store cafes on premises. The service is top notch and the vastness of selection will leave you astounded. A must visit place for those with little readers or those who just still love kids books.

There are two five star book shops in New York City. One is Bank Street and the other is Books of Wonder. They have moved a few times in the last five years and the newest location is the best so far. Not only does The Oz Society meet here but they have added a new "Cupcake Cafe" which has great sweets for the whole family. The book selection is amazing, everything from rare out of print children's books to the newest alphabet books for toddlers. The staff are top notch and will help you find whatever you need and are great for gift advice. I can't recommend this shop enough.

Books of Wonder is an amazing operation. They sell children's books and a few small related toys. The sales staff is amazing, they know everything there is to know about children's books and to top it all off they now have a little cafe that serves great cupcakes and is an all around fun place for kids.

This store is very small and charming. It sells only childrens books, which are reasonably low priced. It is also nice to know you are buying from a small business. Everything is very organized there, and the staff is verry nice.
