Children’s and Young Adults

Dulwich Books welcomes you to our children’s department.



We have books for all ages and tastes. Starting with foam and board books for the tiniest, progressing to picture flats in hard and soft covers, we have the early years covered in our cosy nook at the rear of the shop. We also have a small range of toys and games, including jigsaw puzzles.

We have books for new readers, for children from 6 – 9, 9 – 12 and a host of books for young adults, new adults, cross-over fiction.

We have non-fiction and reference books and can provide anything your family may need for homework, revision, entrance exams, travel and holidays.

If you need a present for a party, on those wet Saturday afternoons when you are steering the car with one hand and biting off the Sellotape while wrapping with the other, we can help with suitable books, wrap, cards.


If you need advice, information, ideas we have specialist staff on site to help. If you need a book delivered urgently within a mile radius of the shop do call 020 8670 1920 – we will always help if we can.

Every Thursday and Saturday at 1100 we have Story Time – readings and craft activities for the pre-schoolers. No need to book, just turn up and enjoy.

If there is no book that meets your needs perfectly then how about a book token? We are part of the national scheme which means you can buy from us and spend in hundreds of stores countrywide.
