Located on Clapham High Street, Clapham Books is a veritable treasure trove of the written word. As well as shelves upon shelves of adult books, cards and gifts, there is a designated children’s books area at the back of the shop with seats, little tables and some toys to play with.
There’s a whole world of books to ignite small minds – from pirates, dinosaurs and monsters, to Julia Donaldson favourites, children’s classics and Aesop’s fables. The collection is easy to navigate, and if you’re after a special gift, this is the place to come for inspiration – there are stickers, Fuzzy Felt, magnetic books, board books and baby books galore. With its hand-picked titles, knowledgeable staff and regular author events, Clapham Books is the perfect place to satisfy bookworms of all ages.
Don’t miss storytelling hour on the first Saturday of every month at 11.30am for five to seven year olds, and Thursday morning storytime for those aged from one to five – the stories and singing start at 11am.
