A great little independent bookstore, and lovely service 😊
Took our 6 year old granddaughter. She received amazing help to purchase a book appropriate to her reading ability. Highly recommended.
Thank you for having such a beautiful selection of books to choose from for our grandson’s birthday.

A wee gem of a shop. Lucky enough to live locally, visit often and rarely leave empty handed! Ordered a couple of books today to brighten my niece’s lockdown birthday and had them the same day. Looking forward to being able to shop in store again soon! Thank you!
Excellent choice of book and gifts for children of all ages. Well informed and friendly staff.
The best little bookshop in Christchurch! A huge selection of books for children (and adults who appreciate children’s books). And a destination location in beautiful Redcliffs!

I just wanted to give some feedback on your online store and say how easy I’ve found it to view your great selection of books. I live in Wellington so cannot come in and visit your store but I will certainly be a returning customer.
Order received today – so quick. I am so delighted I have found you. One of my great pleasures in life has been buying books and toys for my grandchildren, but they are nearly all grown up now. Happily I now have a great grandchild due very soon.
I had another good look at all your books and toys today and could have spent a fortune if I had one. I’ve become very disappointed with many of the major retailers in this respect.
I will be back as baby grows. Thanks again!

I’m so excited with this new collection of books. Thank you for being here in Christchurch!
Great range, my six-month old loves his tummy time with touchy feely books from this wonderful shop. I have purchased books for friends’ children in the past and my gifts are still cherished today.
I LOVE reading and I love buying books. I have bought books from The Children’s Bookshop for many years, first for friends and family, and then for my own children. They stock not just books (though that is definitely the highlight), but games, puzzles, gift ideas… and a wonderful selection of books for readers of all ages and stages.
Great shop, awesome good quality products. Good on you for taking it on.
I loved this place as a kid growing up in Christchurch. It was always one of the must-visit shops in town when I was with my Grandma. I would love to see the new place when you open, bring my son, and show him the wonderment of this fabulous shop.
Amazing to find this shop again. I used to visit a lot when they were in Victoria Street but hadn’t realised they had reopened. Nothing is too much trouble for the people who work there and I can’t wait to return to pick up the book I ordered. We will be back!
