Avid Kids


Avid Bookshop features one of the most engaging, eclectic, and inclusive book collections in the country. Our manager of children's books, Hannah DeCamp, is a librarian who carefully curates the books on our shelves.

The Avid events team hosts a few hundred events per year and many author/illustrator events for younger readers. 

Want to buy the child in your life a gift he/she/they will never forget? Check out our book subscriptions, which are available for readers of all ages, including babies on the way! 

In addition to our in-store and online store offerings, we have a robust #avidinschools program. We can accommodate book orders of all sizes for schools nationwide, and we bring many authors and illustrators to local K-12 school kids each year. Interested in getting involved or learning more about our kids' programming or #avidinschools offerings?

Though our sales floor is currently closed due to Covid-19 concerns, you'll definitely find something just perfect here on our website. Not sure where to start even after reading through this page? Email us and we can send recommendations your way.
