Sources of German Children’s Books
Canada & US
The Alphabet Garten ~ German books, music and information on raising bilingual English-German children. Based out of Washington, the shipping to the US is really reasonable. Shipping to Canada is quite a bit more, and shipping prices start at $19 US.
Amazon~ Amazon.com has some German books either through Amazon itself, or through additional sellers in the Amazon marketplace. Good options for American customers, but again the shipping to Canada can sometimes be prohibitive. Amazon.ca unfortunately doesn’t have any German kids’ books.
The Book Depository ~ This online book store based out of the UK has an excellent selection of German children’s books. Although special characters don’t show up properly, so searching for a specific book can sometimes be tricky. The greatest benefit of the Book Depository for Canadian customers is that they have a free shipping policy across the globe for any number of books.
Le Mandragore ~ This Canadian retailer is both a specialized book shop and distributor for a large number of books following the Rudolf Steiner teaching philosophy. The collection of German children’s books here are truly lovely and are primarily from the publishing houses of Urachhaus and Freies Geistesleben. This book seller is based in Quebec and shipping within the province starts at $3.50. Shipping to the rest of Canada starts at $6.50.
Used bookshops are always worth a look as well, as are the book sections in second-hand stores and online marketplaces such as kijiji and craigslist.org.
Smaller independent retailers or specialty shops may be able to supply German books as well.
