Have you ever seen anything like it? This is Kid's Republic, a bookstore in Beijing. Yes, it was specially created for kids, and wow! How incredible! "mummy, can we go to the bookstore" must be the most popular phrase in the chinese children's vocabulary!
Fully equipped with giant screens and a rainbow palette it's a feast for the young senses and is the product of a new trend in China toward picture book storytelling for children. Apparently, in an effort to adopt all things American, the Chinese have (finally) adopted the idea that a story for a child might be more inviting with bright images... Makes you a little bit more grateful for the small things doesn't it?
