We love the Wild Rumpus bookstore so much!! Everything about it welcomes kids in. The purple door is a kid-sized door within the main entrance (black door) that really works! There are tons of pets all around… free-roaming cats and several other critters in cages like chinchillas, ferrets, a skink, a tarantula, rats, and I’m sure I missed a few.
The books are plentiful and arranged in a very kid-centric way. There is nothing big-box about this bookstore. It is the quintessential independent children’s bookstore, and if you come to Minneapolis, please check it out!
Do you have a favorite independent children’s bookstore where you live?
