Best Posts of 2015

We’ve had an amazing year at Kids Nook, trying all kinds of new programs and new games. Part of the reason that the year has been so great is you guys of course! So as a way to round out the year 2015, we wanted to share our three most popular posts with you guys.

See you in the new year (for some fun new changes!!)

  2. We’ve Got No Strings on Us (Pinocchio Storytelling)

What Have We Been Up To? Take a Look!

This month has been a big month for Kids Nook, but probably the biggest (and best) change is the addition of our new and improved Sensory Station!


That’s right friends, ALL of that stuff is just for our sensory games! Look at how beautiful and organized it is!


Colored beans, rice, walnuts, sand, all of it is ready and waiting for us to play some great games with our kids!

But that’s not all! Take a look at what we’ve done inside our classrooms…

Isn’t that just the best? We certainly think so. We’ll probably be continuing to add things, but for now we’re going to bask in the greatness of what we have so far 🙂

Have a great Monday!

Who are We?

We’ve been showing you a lot about what we do here at Kids Nook, but we haven’t really introduced ourselves. We are Kids Nook, Istanbul’s only bi-lingual children’s bookstore, storytelling academy, and party house!


We do a lot of activities here, including storytellings in both Turkish and English, weekly Sensory Storytimes for ages 1-6, and birthday parties.


For those of you who speak English, we have the city’s most extensive collection of English children’s books. We’re talking about classics like Going on a Bear Hunt, The Gruffalo, Maisy books, and Richard Scary’s stories! We even have books for older children, such as Junie B. Jones, Judy Moody, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and more! Of course we also have books in Turkish, featuring award winning authors such as Sara Şahinkannat and Feridun Oral.


If you’re the kind of person who wants to share the love of reading with your child very early, don’t worry! We have you covered! We have a wide selection of board books, touch and feel books, and lift the flap books just for your little one.


Outside we have our very own tree house and cafe (catered by the excellent Dream Day Cafe). Our goal was to create a space where children can play in a safe space, while also giving mom’s a chance to relax.
