A Children’s Place Bookstore is Portland’s oldest independently owned children’s bookstore. Celebrating more than forty years of “raising readers,” we offer a wide selection of children’s books for readers aged newborn to young adult.

We even have a corner for “mom & dad” books (e.g., Regular fiction and non-fiction; parents, too, need a good book now and then!). In addition, we have a well-stocked array of parenting and teacher resource titles, children’s music, toys, games, and cards. Our specialty is our knowledgeable staff! We take pleasure in helping you find the right book for your child. A children’s place bookstore is a full service bookstore: we are happy to order any title for you if it is still in print.
