Vancouver Shopping: Children’s Books

vancouver shopping children's books

Many mamas work hard to foster a love of learning in their little ones. Starting at birth, babies are constantly taking in the world around them and making connections. One great way to encourage your child’s learning is through great children’s books. Taking your baby to the library is a great way to expose them to books. Sometimes, though, a book is so great you want your own copy. And if your little one explores everything with their mouth you might not want to share. Don’t fret – here is our Vancouver shopping guide to children’s books.

Vancouver Shopping for Children’s Books


First and foremost, you must check out Kidsbooks. We already told you about this fabulous Vancouver bookstore dedicated to children’s literature. With two locations carrying books, learning materials and toys for babies through young adults they’re sure to have something to tickle your fancy. This is definitely one to add to your list of Vancouver shopping destinations for children’s books.

Humpty Dumpty Books and Music

It should come as no surprise that one of our Vancouver shopping destinations for children’s books is in the Kids Market on Granville Island. Humpty Dumpty has been family owned and operated for almost 20 years. They carry a curated selection of books, music, DVDs and audiobooks for children from birth to the teenage years. Whether you’re looking for something fun or trying to enhance learning, check them out.

ABC Academic Books

If you’re looking for something a little more academic, check out ABC Academic Books on Alma. This is your Vancouver shopping destination for textbooks, workbooks, homeschool supplies and a whole lot more.

Chapters Indigo

The downtown location on Robson may be closed, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention this national book chain. They still have locations across the Lower Mainland to tickle your child’s fancy. Their children’s book selection is excellent – it has been expanded while shelf space for adult books has disappeared. Many stores also run special events like storytimes. And of course, you can also do your shopping online through their website, too.
