Chicken and Frog Bookstore

Selling new books to children who are environmentally aware, curious, imaginative and who love to read. Proudly showcasing new books from NZ's leading authors and selected international authors. Open Friday - Sunday, 10am - 4pm, plus Thursdays during school holidays, and Public Holiday Mondays.


The Chicken and Frog Bookstore is the 7th and newest bookshop to open in Featherston.

It specialises in new children's books, with a carefully curated stock of NZ non-fiction, a large Te reo Maori section, as well as wonderful Picture books and Chapter books.  The books cover birth to about age 12.

The shop layout is themed to help children see books in context.  It's a great place to visit for grandparents, parents, children and anyone needing a gift for a child.

Displays and events are regularly held; a celebration of poetry in August, visiting authors in September and October, and in store activities to keep children busy.

Having been a Primary School Librarian for many years, Joanna is very happy to give advice.
