Children’s Books

Raphael has really got in to books recently and It feels like his favourite past time is to empty his bookshelf to find the one book he wants to look at! So to keep him interested I try to update his mini library as often as I can!

I came across this little gem of a kids bookshop in Chadwell Street in Islington where every book is only a £1.00! Children’s Books maybe small but is filled with books for all ages and has a stream of customers passing through its door. Constantly updating their stock I always manage to find something for my little man to enjoy.

Whilst having a wonder around Shoreditch one afternoon, I stumbled across Nobrow. An independent shop, gallery and publisher. The Nobrow shop is filled with beautiful books, comics, graphic novels, toys and limited edition prints.

A favourite of mine, published by Nobrow, is a concertina book Swan Lake detailing a night at the ballet. Beautifully illustrated by artist Ping Zhu it shows both front of house and back stage at the ballet.

They also have an exciting and unusual range of children’s books too. I got Raphael a couple of books. The Game of Light from by Hervé Tullet, is an inventive game of storytelling with shadows and Remarkable Animals, a mix and match book which allows you to create 100’s of mythical creatures.

I literally could spend hours in this store pottering around, it’s well worth a visit…..
