Tell us something interesting about your store.
Cover to Cover is one of the oldest independent children’s bookstores in the Midwest. We sell the best classic and new literature for young readers from board books to YA.
Do you have a holiday tradition at the store?
Each spring we will care for a caterpillar until it becomes a butterfly in the store.
What’s the most memorable event or moment at your store?
So far, it’s author Jon Scieszka helping us reopen the store. Cover to Cover was one of his frst store visits as a young author back in the eighties. So it was great seeing him reconnect with Sally Oddi, the former owner.
What bookstore do you consider to be a hidden gem?
I love Gramercy Books in Bexley. A beautiful store with a great selection and friendly, knowledgable booksellers.
