German children's books?


does anyone know where to get a decent supply of german children's books? I read English and German books to my 4-year-old daughter, but I' m running out of ideas where to get german content (new or second hand). Is Amazon the only option, really?

Thank you in advance!

Try Moe's Books on Telegraph, if you haven't already. They have a small selection of used foreign language children's books, primarily German, Italian, Spanish, and French.

Have you tried the library? I've found a lot of foreign language used kids books at The Bookmark in Old Oakland, including one German board book (I was hoping to learn, ha). That would be more hit-or-miss than the library, though.

I just discovered them, but haven't tried them yet: Shipping is free for orders over 150 Euro.. (haven't decided on the books yet, but if you don't hit the 150, we can order together)

I've bought German books from Book Depository ( They are a UK company with free shipping worldwide and a good selection of German kids books. Also, make sure you catch the Bay Area Kinderstube yard sale, which happens every spring in Albany ( they always have lots of used German kids books for sale.

The East Bay German International School has a nice collection of German children's books. This year they are planning to have community days throughout the year, when you can borrow books from the library.
