About Us

About Us

The Kids’ Bookshop is an online book store specialising in showcasing the very best books for children. Our aim is to provide you with the best possible experience in your selection of children's books; an experience centred on excellent customer service, expert advice and quality product.

We are wholly Australian owned and operated and our staff fully experienced in recommending children’s books. Most importantly, we are passionate about ensuring all kids have access to great books and stories.

Our hope is that you will find shopping with us like visiting an independent ‘bricks and mortar’ bookshop but with the convenience of browsing, asking for advice and making your selection from the comfort of your own home.

The Kids' Bookshop Team

His partner has worked as a teacher, bookseller and a senior manager in the publishing industry (specialising in children’s books) for 20 years. He is the parent of two children who were lucky enough to have had – and continue to have – an endless supply of books in their lives.

Thank you so much, the book arrived this afternoon. The beautiful book bag was a wonderful surprise. Your service has been excellent from website, to ordering, to arriving. Thank you very much.

My order from The Kids' Bookshop turned up less than 24 hours after I ordered it, and the books Erin recommended for Callahan are great. They are exactly the reading level and style I requested. Thank you Erin! Karyn, VIC

Thanks for your time and help, so glad to find a 'proper' bookshop still exists, can't get help like this from the big franchise stores, will definitely be a regular shopper and will recommend you to friends. Mel
