Today is National Book Lovers Day! Why not celebrate by finding your little bibliophile a great new read she can’t put down? Nothing compares to the magic of browsing rows of bookshelves and cracking open the spine of a book so that the story inside can spring to life in a young reader’s imagination. San Diego is home to some very cool bookstores with equally inviting kid’s sections where you’ll find everything from comics and sci-fi to storytime with beloved children’s book authors and Where’s Waldo scavenger hunts. Click through for 6 local shops you should dog ear for your next adventure with your little bookworm!
One of of the best collections of children's books in all of SoCal is housed in a cozy atmosphere that's custom made for families who love zoning out with a good book or trying their hand at a friendly game of Chinese Checkers. Upstart Crow offers a kid's storytime hour on the last Sunday of each month where fun stories are read aloud to a young audience. The Seaport Village store also has a gourmet coffee shop (say "thank you," moms) and a variety of gifts and greeting cards.
