This is the perfect neighborhood bookstore! The selection is fantastic - I can buy books for my students as well as gifts for my nieces here.

As child advocate, it's important to know the best stores to refer families to. Hicklebee's gives the best selection and customer service!!! The store is filled with nooks and crannies for children to sit and curl up with a book. It's a wonderful environment that fosters literacy in so many ways.

This really is one of the best childrens' book-stores in the world. The owner does national TV slots on children's books. The staff can always recommend something that a child will appreciate, and these are good recommendations. There's a bathtub with cushions for children to read in and a train set to play with (I wonder where B&N got that idea?)

We met Eric Carle here last summer. It is a relatively small space and they herded us through, so I didn't get a good look at everything, but it appears they have a good selection. What I did get a feel for is that the employees know their stuff. The one thing that did disappoint is that they didn't anticipate the demand for the books by the author. I think he was mainly there to promote his new book and that sold out quickly, but they were still allowing us to buy a different Eric Carle book to be signed. It's not like Eric Carle's a new author and his books aren't classics - they ended up having him sign book plates to be put on books you could order, definitely not the same for a small child who wanted to leave with a book. Luckily, they also allowed you to have him sign 1 book from home if you brought it as long as you bought one of his books from them and we have a signed copy of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" that we had picked up at our local library for a dime!

This is the most amazing store. They only sell children's books. You really can find any and every children's book here. The staff are the best, very knowledgeable (they clearly love what they do). They can steer you in the right direction if you're looking for the perfect gift. They also have wonderful story-telling events within the store.
