Our children's area is a space for families to spend time: a place of inspiration, magic and wonder. Our shelves are full of exciting new titles for all ages, there's a comfy sofa to share stories surrounded by cuddly toys and even a toy box to entertain little ones while you browse.

We understand the importance of reading and the companionship books offer and we're keen to share our enthusiasm and love of books. We take the time to engage with younger readers, igniting what we hope will be a lifelong love of reading. Children's authors often feature in our own reading and we're constantly impressed by the quality of writing from which to choose our recommendations.

Happy Book Readers

I'm 13 and love to live in a world of books, Cogito lets me do that. I could spend hours getting lost here.

Cogito is every bookish family's dream.

Visiting Cogito is a highlight of our school Book Week every year!

I love to take the boys here for a quick story on the sofa and to treat them to a book if they've been good! Always friendly and welcoming.

I really like Cogito Books as the staff are really kind and helpful. Also, the set up is really good and the sections are really obvious and make finding the book you want very easy. I love Cogito Books!

Claire's knowledge of children's fiction and love of books was evident for all to see in her visit to our school. She motivated and enthused the children with an amazing selection of books which have become firm class favourites.

Our Recommended Reads for Children

There's a fantastic range of new authors and illustrators creating books for children of all ages which make great additions to familiar classics. We've recommended just a small group of them here and there are hundreds more waiting to be found in the bookshop. Our suggestions include some books that are great for children to read themselves and others to read together.
