Discover the Magic of Locally Written Children’s Books With The Local Bookshelf

Welcome to The Local Bookshelf! We are excited to share children’s books with inspirational, reflective and important messages for children and their grown-ups written by authors in Vancouver, Canada and surrounding areas. 

We Write Book Reviews!

Are you a local author looking for ways to promote your book and connect with readers in your community? Look no further! Our book review service offers comprehensive, honest, and insightful reviews of your work to help you reach a wider audience and foster a strong local author community.

We understand the challenges that come with being a writer, especially in today's crowded publishing landscape.
