Announcing a change to The Kids' Bookshop

Thank you to the many customers who have shopped with us from both here and overseas. We have shipped books to Florida, the Pilbara, Ireland and Christmas Island and it has been a great pleasure. 

But the time has come for us to streamline our business and the work that we are doing in schools - events, book fairs, library and classroom book supply -will be our focus going forward. We are looking forward to continuing our work with schools in Victoria and reaching out to those schools around Australia who also need literacy and literatures-based assistance. 

If you are a school who would like to work with us, please contact us on and we will be in touch ASAP. 

Very best wishes and happy reading

Graham, Tegan and Jackie.
