Children's Books

Buy Children’s Books Online - What would a bookstore be without a full collection of children’s books? These are the very bread and butter of the literary world, the stories that all readers first cut their teeth on. While some might shun their pleasures in favour of more adult fare as they grow up, the truly wise know that a good children’s book appeals to both the young and the young at heart.

 

And why not? Who can ever forget the first literary adventures of one’s youth, where fantasy seems more real than reality and the chance of magic is always around the corner. Choosing the very best children’s literature for the next generation is always an important task and responsibility for parents, and we at Kingdom Books pride ourselves in stocking entries from the classics as well as the best and most popular from modern publishers.

 

When it comes to Scottish children’s books, who could ever forget the great debt owed by the world to our northern nation? Some of the finest classics originated from our shores, from countless adventure novels to one of the greatest children’s plays of all time. Imagine a library that was never graced by the adventures of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Wendy in Neverland? Or an imagination untouched by the thrills of Robert Louis Stevenson’s immortal adventures, like Treasure Island or Kidnapped? Even the most popular modern children’s author, J.K. Rowling, finished her Harry Potter novels in an Edinburgh cafe. She even has Scottish roots herself!

 

All these and more await the careful reader at Kingdom Books. Our collection of children’s literature spans from novels to picture books to volumes for younger readers. There’s no better place to buy children’s books online, and we know that there’ll always be something different every time you visit our store.
