Whether you’re looking for board books, picture books, junior fiction, young adult fiction or classics, you can’t look past The Little Bookroom. The Little Bookroom is the oldest children’s bookstore in the world, and they have the best collection of children’s books for you to choose from this Christmas.

With so many books to choose from, it was hard for me to pick a favourite, so I suggest you pop by and browse their online store. May I suggest you start with their ‘Our Favourites’ section- then, from there, you can search by category or by theme.

The Best Online Stores:

The stores featured in this wish list were all sponsors of The Little Book Adventure. Out of over 50 businesses that were approached to sponsor The Little Book Adventure, these were the 8 businesses that were keen to support the projects because, like My Little Bookcase, they feel strongly about the importance of making reading an enjoyable part of every day for children.

I can’t thank these small businesses enough, most of which are run by mothers, because without them I would not have been able to run the challenges, provide prizes or deliver them to participants.

If you are planning to do some online Christmas shopping, I’d love for you support these businesses that made The Little Book Adventure possible.
