They like us! They really, really like us!

Curious George was named 2008's Best of Boston kids' bookstore by Boston Magazine! Hip, hip, hooray!

Here's why, according to their annual Best of Boston issue:

Founded with help from Curious George coauthor Margret Rey, this Harvard Square mainstay doesn't rest on pedigree. It livens up the calendar with frequent author signings, stays timely with additions like an "environmental awareness" section, and balances its bountiful classics with acclaimed new releases. And since sifting through thousands of titles for all reading levels can be daunting, the seasoned staffers are ready to help you locate, say, the perfect horse-themed series for your nine-year-old niece. Though here's betting no assistance will be required to spot books and toys featuring a certain mischievous monkey.

We think we're the best around thanks to all of you. We know you rely on us to find the perfect horse-themed series for your nine-year-old niece. Or the best truck book for your auto-voracious three-year-old son, the best funny/scary chapter book for your first time camper, the best girly book that's not too, well, "girly." Our customers keep us on our toes and we owe this Best of Boston award to you. Keep those challenges and questions coming. We're here for you.
