It’s party time at Seattle’s newest kiddo bookshop, Mockingbird Books. The Green Lake shop will celebrate its grand opening on Sunday, August 31–stop in before then for a 10% off coupon. Mockingbird’s huge space is filled with delightful picture books, early readers, chapter books, Junior-level non-fiction, middle grade novels, young adult novels, and adult novels; plus there’s a cafe space for lattes and juice.

Every day at 11:00 am, it’s toddler story time. That bears repeating: story time, every single day. Remember to join the frequent buyer program for big savings. Coming soon: author, illustrator, and music events in the spacious room atop the store. We know this treasure trove of family books is about to become one of your favorite browsing and buying spots, and Saturday marks a fun day to explore your new haunt.

The event room will be inaugurated with a family concert: Recess Monkey, Seattle’s hottest band for the kidlet set, takes the stage at 3:00 pm. Enjoy story telling, face painting, and more. And if you’re looking for the perfect bedtime book or birthday gift, ask the phenomenally knowledgeable staff for their spot-on-every-time pro recommendations. Read on!
