My Magic Words is an experience, not just an ordinary bookshop! 😀 We enjoy shopping there as it has an affordable range of books for children of all ages. We also enjoy attending the crafty workshops during the school holidays, which are super interesting. We also enjoy their free book readings. They sell beautiful material puppets as well, which we have enjoyed. Parents can grab a warm drink whilst children are busy with workshops. We also enjoyed having our daughter's birthday party there ❤️ The staff is super friendly and dedicated ❤️
