    Looking for a new and exciting place to host the best birthday party ever? Party with us at WORD! Children 3 and up can spend their special day celebrating in our Brooklyn or Jersey City store with parties themed around some of the best children's books of all time. Our parties include storytime, games, arts and crafts, and wrapped book favors, all hosted by our bubbly book experts!

    The times available are:
    Brooklyn: Sundays from 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 

    Jersey City: Saturdays from 5 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. 

    See below for some photos of our past parties, and email kids@wordbookstores.com at least six (6) weeks in advance for more information on rates, themes, and availability!

    Want to treat the 18-and-under kid in your life? Sign them up for our birthday club! During the month of their birthday, they'll get a Happy Birthday postcard and coupon, good for 25% off books and toys. Registration in the club is free. If you'd like to sign up a child, you can call or e-mail us at kids@wordbookstores.com. Make sure to include the child's first and last name, birth month and year, and the physical address where you'd like the postcard to be sent. We promise to only use this information for Birthday Club, and we'll email you a confirmation that they've been signed up! (Please note: the coupon must be redeemed in-store and is not applicable to online orders.)
