    Where to buy books for babies/children?

    I would like to buy books for my 9 month old - large 'board' books, titles like 'Goodnight Moon.' Any idea where in HK I might be able to find such titles?

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot. I was hoping there would be a physical location I could visit, a brick and mortar shop, someplace more conducive to browsing.

    There's a children's bookstore in Horizon Plaza at Ap Lei Chua - they give a discount if you buy a certain quantity. It's got a fairly extensive selection. But I'm not sure if they are cheaper than other places especially if you have a membership card at Dymocks for instance. Nothing beats bookdepository.com (free shipping) though, if you already know the titles you want and can wait a few weeks.

    There are quite a few "bricks and mortar" bookstores in HK you can find a great selection of board books. Check out Bookazine in Prince's Building or IFC mall, Metrobooks in Elements mall, Book Castle (kids bookstore) in Lee Gardens Two. There is also one in Windsor House, Causeway Bay (can't remember the name). I have gotten a lot of books for my baby too. Have fun shopping!

    Thanks a lot. I'm going book shopping tomorrow. For anyone reading this in the future, the store in Ap Lei Chua is called Pollux Books and judging from their website, it looks quite comprehensive
