the little bookroom, carlton north

This mamma is so excited to tell you about this little gem. Opening it's doors in 1960, The Little Bookroom has moved to three different locations and has had only three sets of owners, even the original shelves have made every single move! Leesa Lambert the last of the three owners and her parents Lesley and Ian continue to be committed it's iconic legacy, bringing a sense of magic and wonder as soon as you walk through the door. 
The Little Bookroom runs regular story time for toddlers, book launches, book swaps and, meet and greets with some of the most influential, astounding writers and illustrators. The Little Bookroom isn't just a children's bookstore, but a movement of discovery and wonder bringing enthusiasm to all it's readers. A beautiful experience for every little and BIG reader.

Mamma special mention: While you are there pop over to Birdie Num Nums for a bite to eat while the kids have a play.
