If there ever was a spa version of a kid's bookstore, this is it. Located in the hip area off robertson and 3rd street (near the Beverly Center), this store offers all the classics and more. They sell pristine copies of old classics like the Wizard of Oz for unbelievably high prices. If want specialty books for your children or as gifts, this is a good place to go before you head to lunch at he Newsroom Cafe.
Story time is good except it gets pretty crowded with parent and kiddies in a small lounge area. The store is also not child-proof--meaning there are breakable items at low levels for easy access. It's seems like it's more of a place for parents to buy for their kids, than for kids themselves.
They also frequently have special events which you can check out on their website at www.storyopolis.com. They also validate parking downstairs.
