Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

BOOKSTORE: Queen Books (Leslieville)


This is the new kid on the block in my neighbourhood (I live one-minute walk from that store). The place hosted Paint Depot, a beloved paint store that paid great attention to their window dressing. We were really concerned about a potential loss of curb appeal, for no reason! Queen Books created a lovely store with cool windows. They made a very good use of the split level layout (the backstore on the upper end is dedicated to kids books). Everything is cute and inviting.
