Do you remember the charming bookstore in the Meg Ryan romcom You’ve Got Mail? It was inspired by Books of Wonder (Meg even worked here briefly to train for the role), and the real thing is just as magical (and jam-packed with great kiddie reads) as the cinematic store. Here you'll find both classic children's books (some in their original editions and bought by collectors); as well as a wide-range of contemporary fiction that the expert staff will be happy to help you cull through. The bookstore is also known for its wide-variety of readings and other events. And if you need incentive to get your kid to read, know that there's also a cupcake counter in the shop.
