You will find treasure at Alphabet Soup 6/4/2009

There are ALWAYS at least 3 books at Alphabet Soup that I cannot leave without buying. I have found books from my childhood, as well as books I never knew existed. Money goes a lot further here than at Barnes and Noble, and you can bring in books for trade. PERFECT. And Janet (the owner) is awesome. more

Great Children's Book Store 9/8/2008

This is a wonderful children's book store with a wide variety of new and used books, and even some classic vintage books and selections for adults. It's also a great place to bring your kids because they can run around and open books and just have fun. more

The Best Children's Bookstore in Seattle 9/14/2006

This is truly the best children's bookstore in all of Seattle! They have an extraordinary selection of used and new books. We bought a bunch of used books at awesome prices. The ambiance is incredibly cool too. Our three year old had a blast just sitting there and reading books out loud to herself for over an hour. My wife and I had a wonderful time too as the owner makes you feel totally at home. Check it out. You will love it!!!!!! more

Cute kids book store in Wallingford. 3/30/2006

A cute kids bookstore with both new and used selections. Alphabet soup seems to focus on classics but has many newer books ranging from preschool to preteen appeal books. It is very causal and comfy yet fairly small... I would feel completely comfortable letting my rug-rat loose to browse. My only complaint (and its a small one) is that the prices seem a little higher than I'd expected. However with such a small independent and specialized place I believe its justified. more

Alphabet Soup is a treasure 8/20/2005

Granted I am a person who tends to feel at home and highly comforted when surrounded by children's literature, but this store really is terrific. The perfect blend of all your old favorites and the classics along with entirely new books to discover. Plus if they don't have what you're looking for they're happy to track it down and order for you. more

The perfect place to find children's books! 8/19/2005

This small and cozy children's bookstore has much to offer in its intimate atmosphere. All the classics are available, i.e. Shel Silverstein, Dr. Seuss, Maurice Sendak, and lots of new classics like Maisy the Mouse and others. The selection is organized in such a way to make it easy to find a particular subject matter or type of book or to find a book appropriate for a particular age. In addition to lots of new selections, there is a lovely selection of used and even vintage books. You will also find a small selection of adult fiction and non fiction and parenting/pregnancy books. And if you needed another reason to visit this lovely bookstore, you should know they are independently owned, making them a good place to spend your hard-earned dollar. Add to this a knowledgeable and concerned person at the counter to help you and you really have the perfect place to find children's books. more
