We're trying to figure out how many books to bring, especially for my 6 year old who's an "early reader." Does anyone know the name of this bookstore? Any other suggestions? How much more will we pay for English kids books in BsAs than in the US? We're absolutely fine with used books.Lea said:Hi Mark - ever been to the massive book store - almost all for children on Marcelo T. de. Alvear. Roughly between Uruguay and Talcahuano. Fantastic range of English books!
I have thoroughly exhausted the limited supply of English books that I read to my two boys (3 & 5). Can anyone suggest where I can buy used (or even new if reasonably priced ) English children`s books?

Syngirl you have never written a post I havent agreed with and maybe Im out of the US and Europe too long but I dont see the big price hike applied to books as it is to food say for example. You can pick up a new Usborne book for a 3yr old, hardback for 25 pesos or less...and whilst I know of the fabulous price offers that many book outlets have n the US you wont get new books mich cheaper than 25 pesos at Barnes & Noble say.
Buying new is a lovely luxury if you love books as much as we do but the best low cost bet is to hook up with other parents who like to share books which is what we do at our sons`schools.
