As a dedicated and somewhat passionate children's bookseller I proudly offer a hand-picked selection of books showcasing inspiring stories, fascinating facts and beautiful illustrations. All books have been chosen to ignite your child's own imagination, brighten up their lives with some literary fun and turn them into eager and confident consumers of written entertainment and knowledge.
I started Alphabet Soup Children's Bookshop after becoming a Phoenix Trading refugee. Unfortunately Phoenix went into administration and closed its doors forever in the Autumn of 2017. I sold Phoenix Trading cards for the best part of 4 and half years and enjoyed every minute of it.
When Phoenix closed we were presented with an opportunity to become a trader with it's spin off company which is currently in a beta phase and will be known as Flamingo Paperie. I considered all options but in the end I decided to use the demise of Phoenix Trading in order to start something new and fresh.
Juggling being a Phoenix trader whilst also studying towards a creative writing degree with The Open College of the Arts had its obvious challenges although both roles were very important to me. Being a children's bookseller for me will tie in more closely with my college studies. I have always had a passion for books and my tutor is a children's book author, albeit in a small way.
I feel that by running my own little bookshop I will begin to shape the next step of my life and help with my pathway to becoming a published children's author myself one day in the future. So here I am with my own mini book selling business venture which I hope to grow as time goes by and as I learn the many new ropes that come with running an online children's bookshop.
I look forward to serving you, your family and friends. From one book lover to another and as my favourite children's author Dr. Seuss quotes, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go".
During 2019 our pop-up children's bookshop can be found be at . . . .
