Reviews for Children In Paradise

over a year ago

It's still around – Wow! I can't believe this place is still in business -- I'm so happy! I remember coming here when I was a little girl after church. This is the place where my love of books started. Now I'm 15 and a complete bookworm. I definitely reccomend this bookstore. I remember the staff being friendly and helpful to my mom and the decor of the actual store is a little kid's dream.

The keepers of the staircase are real dolls. – The Store
Most employees are education majors or former teachers; count on being assisted by someone who's been involved with children's lives and literature and has a good feel for what kids want in a book. It's located in Chicago's toniest shopping district, and make no mistake, there are some well-dressed kids with parents to match, browsing the Children In Paradise shelves. If they're regular customers, they'll be as well-read as they are dressed.

The Books
The ample selection of books covers children from infancy to about age 12, and the brunt of the collection falls roughly into the 4- to 7-year-old range, echoing its little customer demographic. In addition to storybooks and other fiction, there are good science and nature sections, and a really nice art section. The child care section mostly includes books on art and arts and crafts, probably a clear reflection of the store's philosophy. There are plenty of gifts to be found, ranging from stuffed animals to craft projects to a surprisingly large assortment of umbrellas. Gifts that go with books, like the Beatrix Potter line or Winnie-the-Pooh, are available, and the staff is quick with expert suggestions.
