If this doesn’t get kids to read, nothing will. Kids Republic, a bookstore in China, looks like the fantasy world you read about in books, not a place to shop for them. Designed to look more like a playground than a store, it features huge story telling screens and a myriad of play areas, all done up in vibrant colors and intriguing shapes. Kids can crawl in and around the little nooks where they can read and relax. Seems like the kids may well enjoy the playing much more than the reading, but either way, it may be the only way to get your child to even think about entering a bookstore.
