I chanced upon this quaint little bookshop in Millenia Walk on Sunday after lunch.
Woods in the Books is an independent picture bookshop with it’s flagship store at Club Street. The branch at Millenia Walk, 2nd level, has the same whimsical wall murals and classic selections of children’s books.
I found many “must-read” titles like “Dr Seuss’s sleep book” and “Goodnight moon” ($13.90 for small board book) at very reasonable prices.
From board books to soft covers, there’s a delightful collection of picture books for all the kids and kids at heart.
I was almost tempted to get the “Goodnight moon” because Baby O just couldn’t get enough of the two little kittens in them (he’ll point to them and smile at me), but there’s only the smaller version.
I wouldn’t hesitate to get books from here when Oliver outgrows his gnawing of books (thus paperbacks are out of the question) though.
With this mini discovery, plus a kids toys and organic shop along the same stretch, Millenia Walk has managed to clinch a space in my heart for the next best place to hangout.
The Commune cafe is a place I’ll like to try out next time with my khakis and also let me just flail over this amazing eye candy and amazing delicatessen, Rainbow cake, available from Medz at the first floor.
It’s really sweet though, best matched with something tinging in slight bitterness like hot coffee or tea to balance the aftertaste.
However, the atmosphere of Medz leaves much to be desired. Unless you like big screens featuring the latest Formula One match or soccer whilst dining in a Marche-like restaurant.
