It is hard to believe that we are well into Spring Term and Christmas is nearly upon us! I thought I would share some good online bookstores in case you are thinking of ordering some special books to fill Christmas Stockings. I like supporting 'brick and mortar' bookshops and we are lucky enough to have some great ones locally - Bookcafe Swanbourne, The Lane Claremont and Dymocks in both Claremont and Subiaco - but online shopping can also be very handy.

Here are a few of my favourites:

www.pegiwilliams.com.au A children's book specialist based in South Australia.

www.thekidsbookshop.com.au A beautiful Australian online store that recommends books based on age and gender

www.leoandbella.com.au This is not a bookstore, but in the 'kids' interior' section of the site, it has a few pages of the most divine books. Some of my absolutely treasured books have been found here.

www.growingfootprints.com.au Again, this is not a bookstore, but if you can make it past some of the most delightful wooden toys and home wares, you will find a section with books that are just gorgeous and perfectly chosen!

www.booktopia.com.au This is a large online shop with $6.95 shipping

www.bookdepository.com This is UK based, but has most books and free shipping. An awesome shop!

Have fun Christmas shopping!
