About Little Shop of Stories
Since opening in 2005, Little Shop of Stories has become a nationally recognized and award-winning children’s bookstore. At its core, it has been the mission of Little Shop of Stories to foster empathy, creativity, and bravery in children through books and to develop in kids a love of reading.
In furtherance of these goals, Little Shop has been thrilled to provide opportunities for young readers to interact with their author and illustrator heroes and to provide a platform for newer authors to develop an audience.
With previous festival experience such as the Decatur Root Beer Festival and the Decatur Book Festival, Little Shop of Stories is excited to invite readers of all ages to celebrate children and young adult literature with the new Decatur Children’s Book Festival.
