Our story

Hi I’m Anna, as a librarian and bookseller, I have always been surrounded by children’s books. However, I noticed that children often ended up reading the same popular series because those were the only books most stores offered.

This is why I started Be Curious Booksβ€”I knew there were so many excellent children's books out there just waiting to be discovered.

I wanted to offer a curated selection that stands out, providing young readers and their parents a trusted guide to finding great reads. let’s make finding a great book easy!

Be Curious Books has grown into more than just a bookstore. We carefully select complementary toys and gifts that extend the magical world of books. Welcome to our store.

Anna, Owner of Be Curious Books
