Kenilworth Books is a magical little place; it nestles in a small and lively town that sits right in the middle of the country. We have a large children's section and plenty of fiction and non-fiction for adults, including a large section for maps and travel guides, and three bays of history (including local history, as you'd expect from a bookshop in an historic town!). We have sections too for Young Adult writing and for some of the most powerful and beautiful illustrated books being published today.
We have a great selection of cards, including many from local artists. You'll also find gifts from literary mugs, to wildlife themed toys for younger children, a selection of traditional wooden toys and the latest not-so-traditional school crazes! We can order books for you, usually to arrive the next day. The team at Kenilworth Books works closely with the many local schools and libraries in our county and in the City of Coventry, advising teachers and pupils, and supplying books for school and library shelves.
Look out for book reviews for children in every edition of Raring2go! selected and written by Tamsin Rosewell from Kenilworth Books. Great ideas for books your children will love to read and a perfect way to introduce new genres that they may never otherwise have come across. Or you could pop in and see them and let them help you choose your families next book to read - you may be surprised what you find that you love!
If you are looking for ideas to keep the children busy throughout the Christmas holidays, or the kids want some ideas and inspiration for cards and gifts them take a look at our Winter KidsZone. Jam packed full of fun ideas that everyone can get involved in! Activities for indoors and out - some are messy, some are not! What are you waiting for?!?!
Now that we are in winter everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to enjoy the festive season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the world around you - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle!
