    children's books

    hi there

    Just want to know where you normally get books for your kids? local bookstore, local library, or sent by relatives from home country? Do you feel that your kids are getting enough books to enjoy?

    Any input will be greatly appreciated

    GeoBaby has its own bookstore. We sell books online thru ShopinHK.Com

    we get our books from the local book store. My kids devour books, we could start our own library with the amount we have.

    I love Bookazine and Pollucks(?), it's at HKIsland station. And, Page One. There's also that bookstore near Pier 7. I find Page One and Dymocks the most expensive. Ordering online via Amazon is sometimes cheaper if they have a sale.

    We usually buy from Pollux. They've got a great selection of kids books from UK, Aus, US & HK. There's one by the airport express, or a big one in South Horizon Plaza (same floor as Bumps to babes).

    children's books

    There's a great little bookstore, Lee Gardens Two right by Pacific Coffee/Gucci, called Bookazen. Their books are specially selected by a mother of two and are much more reasonably priced then Dymocks/Pollux. Check it out...

    There is also a little bookstore in the Peak Galleria (sorry can't remember the name) which has really cheap books for children. It doesn't have a huge selection, but some of the board books are just $10 each! It's definitely worth a look if you are visiting the Peak. I also order books online from Paddyfield.com (which is based in Wanchai) as it is cheaper than the local bookstores and shipping is free if you buy enough.
