The Children's Book Shop has been committed to providing our customers with the best in children's literature since 1977 from our location in the heart of Brookline Village, MA. Our stock is hand-selected and carefully curated to include classics and backlist favorites as well as the latest releases. We carry a wide range of fiction and nonfiction for ages newborn to teen and everyone in between (and parents, grandparents, teachers, and librarians, too).
As of January 1, 2021, our storefront in Brookline is open for in-store shopping and curbside pickup from Monday–Saturday from 10 am–5 pm and closed on Sundays. Please call us at 617-734-7323 during our open hours for assistance, or place an order on our website for fulfillment directly by the shop!
PLEASE NOTE: Bookshop.org is a third-party organization we've partnered with to provide additional options to our customers. This means that books that are listed on our Bookshop.org page are not necessarily in stock at our physical storefront in Brookline—if a book says "available," that means it is available at Bookshop's warehouses. If you order books through our Bookshop.org page, Bookshop fulfills the order and ships the books directly from its warehouses. It is not possible to order books through Bookshop.org for pickup at our shop. If you're interested in picking books up from the shop, give us a call, send us an email, or order through our website and select "in-store pickup" at checkout.
