We have the most amazing children's bookstore here in town:
Reading Reptile, Books and Tapes For Young Mammals.
It's a magical place, where all your child's favorite characters come to life!
Every inch, every nook and cranny, is filled with the wonder of picture books.
Even the ceiling is covered!
"Caps For Sale" is a classic.
Chairs in cozy reading areas invite you to sit and peruse books with your child.
The store hosts a storytime, book club, movie night, authors visits,
wonderful birthday parties and many other special events.
Do you recognize all these fun story critters?
My children loved "My Father's Dragon".
When the kids were little, we followed the dinosaur tracks to the store in Westport.
The Reading Reptile relocated a few years ago
to a wonderful new space in Brookside, and my children have grown up,
but I still stop by to purchase books for the other little people in my life.
I hope you will visit soon too!
Celebrate with books! Read to your children!
