This dedicated kids story house has rapidly evolved around the specialist children’s bookshop with writers, story tellers & illustrators on hand, workshops, kids book clubs, book launches, and discussion panels make for a dynamic children’s cultural hub.
Opening their doors in 2016, Paper Bird has found a nest among friends at the historic Moores Building, alongside the Moores Contemporary Art Gallery and Moore & Moore Cafe, on Henry Street in Fremantle.
Close by to other independent bookshops, New Edition, The Map Shop and Bill Campbell’s Books, along with Notre Dame University, Paper Bird is working to create a literary precinct in the West End of Fremantle.
The specialist children’s bookshop stocks quality books, focusing on Australian writers and illustrators. Indigenous stories feature strongly at Paper Bird with local writers and illustrators from Magabala Books and Fremantle Press having dedicated shelves.
Twice weekly story telling under the beautiful tree in the courtyard at the rear of the store, where children’s book writers and illustrators get to work alongside their young readers and where kids book clubs, creative writing and arts workshops bring stories to life.
Paper Bird is a must visit for people of all ages.
