I bumped into The Little Reader on my way to pick up my kids from school. What a beautiful surprise! Finally, a children’s bookstore that has an international feel and a cafe to boot. There’s a cozy couch and lots of books to leaf through while sipping a cappuccino. I have been to this lovely gem many times, often taking my kids (3 and 7 yrs old) to story telling time in English and different kid workshops on Saturday mornings. I love love love this place! I hope it stays in my neighbourhood forever! (Chiara Moriconi)
