Kids & YA

At watchung booksellers, the children's room is not a great green room, 

 and there is no telephone or red balloon, but.... 
In the great BLUE room, there is a toy basket, and shelves of books, 

and a ceiling star that shines when up you look!

The front door of the bookstore opens and some of our most important customers run immediately to the back. That's where the children's room is, and it's where all the magic begins. 

Words and pictures come alive. Stories are read time and time again. Readers pick out their next journey and young adults escape to other worlds. Families grow up in the bookstore and it's a joy and a privilege for us to be a part of that. 

Finding the right book for someone means getting to know them a little, helping them express themselves, and then seeing that smile when they discover just the right title.
