Young bookworms in Chapel Allerton will be spoiled for choice now that Leeds’ only independent children’s bookshop has opened in the suburb.
The Little Bookshop has taken over a former charity shop on Harrogate Road and boasts a small cafe as well as daily story time sessions and regular visits from authors and illustrators.
The shop was founded by ex-childminder and mum-of-three Cheryl Duffield, together with Hannah Limming and Lou Fenton of Pop Up and Play, a creative agency which helps companies target families.
Cheryl said the response from customers has so far been “overwhelming”.
“It’s really exciting. We are really enjoying it. We’ve just had such a great response from the customers saying it looks great and they’re really pleased it’s here, which gives us a real buzz. It’s really nice.”
