Spring...I mean...BOOK-store fever!

Well, if you live in NYC like I do, it definitely does NOT feel like Spring! So what does one do on a cold, rainy March afternoon such as today's? Cozy up at one of these three kid-friendly bookstores:

1. Books of Wonder in Chelsea18 West 18th StreetNew York, NY 10011, (212) 989-3270. I love how spacious this store is. Storytime every Friday from 4pm-5pm and Sunday 12-1pm. Did I mention there's a bakery inside too?

2. McNally Jackson in Nolita52 Prince Street , New York, NY  10012, 212-274-1160.  The children's section of this store makes you feel like you're in your own little library. They also have live puppet shows once a month! Plus, you guessed it, they also have a little cafe area to fulfill your caffeine and baked good needs.

3. Scholastic in Soho: 557 Broadway, New York, NY 10012, (212) 343-3166
You'll be greeted by all sorts of characters from Clifford and Magic School Bus! This is the one store that actually wants your child to play and make noise. Plenty of space to read and browse their organized and leveled selections.
