Concept: Originally a small shop in the lobby of Bank Street College, this store is now in a space big enough to house its impressive inventory of books for and about children from birth to teens. Picture books dominate, but there are also entire sections devoted to early reading, science, the creative arts, foreign languages, world geography and cultures, and young adult novels. In addition, there are parenting books, activity books, books about teaching, and a healthy selection of art supplies and toys.
Online ordering: Yes.
Other features: Book Club members receive a 10% store credit for every book purchased, with coupons issued after the 12th book.
