With three floors, a cozy café and plenty of quirky Keep-Austin-Weird decor, it’s no wonder that BookPeople—the largest bookstore in Texas—has been voted the capital city’s best bookstore year after year. One of its most beloved sections is the kids area, which features a colorful, carpeted mini-amphitheater perfectly suited for weekly story times held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday morning. No matter what tale they tell, you can count on the store’s staff to send your kids home with a smile—they even occasionally bust out their “preposterous puppeteers” for special sessions on the weekend!
