Opening in October 1960, The Little Bookroom lays claim to being the world's oldest children's bookstore, and is still regarded as the best in Melbourne. The Nicholson Street store in Carlton North houses the original shelves and all manner of literary wonders. Both grown ups and littlies will lose track of time in this perfect little store. The collection is clever, innovative and educational, and caters for children of all ages, from picture books for babies, through to young adult fiction. Bookish heaven.
