I'm mad about books and I really love local book stores. I find there is a dwindling selection of interesting books at Chapters/Indigo and more and more scented candles, picture frames and overly priced baby toys. The books don't seem to be the focus there as much anymore. I try to shop at independent and second-hand book stores as much as possible, and when we need a parenting-type book there is no better shop than the perfectly named Parentbooks,
The staff at Parentbooks are so knowledgeable and the selection is outstanding. If you need a particular title, they will order it in for you. Whether you are looking for books about adoption, ADHD, asthma, autism or anger management, Parentbooks has it covered (and those are just some of the As).
Parentbooks is located at 201 Harbord Street, south of Bloor just east of Bathurst. Rosie :)
