Books for Kids

Our Garden Bookshop has a huge area dedicated to children, sponsored by Baillie Gifford. Stacked to the rafters with thousands of titles, from classic picture books for budding readers through to contemporary teen fiction, it truly is an Aladdin's Cave.

Exploring the books, browsing and reading in the bookshop is thoroughly encouraged, and there is a special area for you to share books and stories with each other. There are also frequent book signings and chances to meet your favourite authors. Pop in, stay a while and enjoy the Festival environment.

Parents can be safe in the knowledge that all proceeds made from our independent book sales operation are ploughed straight back into the Book Festival - helping to fund our celebration of literature and ideas.
