Blogger Local Kansas City encourages the kid in all of you to make the trip to Brookside to check out Reading Reptile.  Once you step off the sidewalk and through the doors,you are transformed into a magical universe of shapes, textures, colors and most of all children’s books.  For over 25 years this Kansas City favorite has been an exciting place for children of all ages to come together to share, learn and explore.

You’ll want to book plenty of time check this local treasure out.  From every nook and cranny paper mache worlds are recreated from a variety of children’s most beloved books.  The staff is friendly, patient and incredibly knowledgeable about all things literature.  Shopping for a niece or nephew and don’t want to buy them the latest video game and you would like to get them a book but just don’t know which one?  No problem the people of Reading Reptile will gladly help you key in on just what they want and if that book is out of stock they will order it.

You would think it couldn’t get any sweeter right?  Le Petit Rouge cakes and dainties have set up a fairy tale bakery inside of Reading Reptile to provide a variety of scrumptious treats to enjoy while reading with your little ones.  If you and your family are looking for something to do this weekend, we highly recommend heading on down to Brookside.  At Reading Reptile you can take a trip down memory lane and help create some for your kids.
