The Children's Bookshop, Muswell Hill is an independent family-owned children's bookshop which first opened in 1974. 


Stocking a huge range of fiction and non-fiction, our staff are always on hand to offer specialist advice on choosing books for children.


We run a bespoke subscription service for book lovers of all ages, and gift collections to mark any occasion - see more at our shop page.

We also offer a comprehensive service to schools and teachers, including school library supply, book fairs, author visits and open evenings. For more information on what we can offer you as a parent, carer, teacher or school please either contact us or take at our information for schools.
