I love this store! It is the closest bookstore to our house and we frequent it often. I have a bit of an obsession with books. For some people it’s shoes, purses or other fancy ‘mommy’ items. I love books. I can’t go into the store without coming out with something. My kids love this store for the books but more so for the train table. As with most Indigo/Chapters stores there’s a Thomas the train table set up with trains galore that the kids are drawn to immediately. I usually luck out that it happens to be story time when I pop in which is extra special. I get to browse at the new kids titles while my kids are entertained. If you get a chance to stop at this location you should the women who do story time are fantastic! They have such a great reading voices and the kids love it. They’re also a great wealth of information when it comes to book suggestions. They’ll show you books that they love and read through them with you showing you why they love them. They truly love reading and books and it’s great to have that kind of advice when buying books for kids.
Story time runs every Monday through Friday at 10:30 a.m. with the kids gathering in the boat in the kids section. No registration required which is great if you can’t get into one of the library programs!
Location: 5570 Signal Hill Centre SW
And make sure you check out their great kids bargain section – I always manage to find something there!
