A bookstore-without-walls for kids, teens, families, and educators in the Bronx and beyond.

Our online store is open!

It's true: you can find cheaper books and free shipping elsewhere online. But when you buy from us you're supporting a small, locally-owned business that's bringing more books to kids in the Bronx, a community without a children's bookstore for its 600,000 residents under the age of 18. Your money will circulate throughout the Bronx, and your purchase will support people, not corporate algorithms.
