Sell Us Your Books

We’re interested in buying children’s books but we’re selective. We buy first editions with emphasis on condition. Despite the fact that children’s books were published for and used by children, collectors desire those that have survived in excellent condition. With that in mind, we cannot buy any books with defects such as loose bindings, missing pages, torn pages, internal soil or marks, or ex-library books.


Send us an email of what you would like to sell. Please DO NOT send any books until we respond.

Once we’ve expressed interest in your books, here’s how it works:

  1. Package the book(s) in a well-cushioned, sturdy box. (Shipping via U.S.P.S. Priority Mail is best).
  2. When we receive the package we will make you an offer if we want to buy it.
  3. If you accept, we will send you a check and if not we will return the book. 

This has worked successfully since we started in 1977. We’ve never had a book lost in transit and also have never had an offer refused.
