Amanda is the momma half of the Amanda & Nat show. 2nd Star is Amanda’s “hobby job” that she adores for myriad reasons:  a sense of community & family, a safe space for her growing Natman & the honor of helping to stock the store with books & goodies galore. “It is such a pleasure to be able to be a part of the 2nd Star family & I love watching my little man grow and mature from his time here.”

Nat joins Amanda at 2nd Star & has grown up as a shop-baby (all 4 years of his life) & he is (almost) always willing to help guide you to one of his favorite books or toys, both past & present. You know it’s tried & true when a 4-year-old is pitching his favorites! Make sure you say hi to Nat if he’s here next time you visit – he always has something good to share!

This lovely bookstore is our second home. We love the staff! They adore our little one and always make the best recommendations for his age and current interests.

Wow! What an awesome children's bookstore! My two boys absolutely love this place. We live in the Highlands-Berkeley Neighborhood & frequent Tennyson often on our bikes/scooters...

Today we came for storytime with Belle. It was my first time and it certainly won't be the last. The staff were all amazing. Marc went above and beyond, though. He offered a ton of great suggestions and took my daughter out front to play with sidewalk chalk while I payed. I rarely leave reviews but this place was fantastic!
