10 Reasons to visit the Kid’s Nook at Yellow Dog Bookshop

  1. We have a fabulous mural painted by local artist Jessie Starbuck.  Our tree mural is the perfect backdrop for sitting down and reading a picture book or two. Painted Tree in the Kid's Nook
  2. Our cozy nook is a place to take a quiet moment with your child if you need to get out of the cold/heat of Missouri weather.  little girl wearing cat ears sitting on a low bench reading a book in the kid's nook.

  3. We have picture books!Night Before Christmas picture book open to a spread of santa on top of the house with the reindeer.
  4. Middle readers… we’ve got you covered with both old and new titles!Middle readers are in luck! We have so many good titles for you!
  5. We have Story Time at least once a month.  And okay, so it doesn’t happen INSIDE the Kids’ Nook… but it happens right outside in the main part of the bookshop.  The stories we read are always chosen from the Kid’s Nook.Our story time reader reads to kids sitting on our checkerboard floor.
  6. We LOVE to know what you’re reading… .  Pssst.  We read a lot of kid’s books- we kind of like them.  A lot.  In fact, Kelsey reads mostly YA books and she loves to talk about them with other YA readers!an illustration of Alice from Alice in Wonderland when she's huge inside the house as a section sign for the young adult section.  The sign is stuck on the end of a bookcase which recedes into the distance.
  7. We have two kids and they demanded that we have a spot for them in the shop.Close up photograph of two kids- 5 year old girl holds her 2 year old brothers face to puff his cheeks out
  8. Classics.  There is a reason these books are classics… kids (grown up kids) and current kids alike love books like: Charlotte’s Web, A Wrinkle in Time, the Mrs. Pickerell books, Alice in Wonderland and more.A close up picture of book spines and one book faced out called Mrs. Pickerell goes to the Moon.
