Woozles is proud and happy to own the title of Canada's oldest children's bookstore. We turned 37 years young in October 2015. We started out as a bookstore in Halifax in 1978 with 600 customers on opening day. Now we serve new generations of customers.


Woozles is "a place for and about children" and that remains our mandate to this day.

Our online store is powered by Book Manager, an excellent data resource widely used across the Canadian bookselling industry. While every effort has been made to ensure access to appropriate materials, you may find titles that we would not carry in our store, as they are not children's reading material.
