About Mockingbird Books

Mockingbird Books is located in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle (just north of Rosita's) in the Great Hall at Green Lake. We love to be a part of introducing young children to the exquisite joy of learning to read and to continue in partnership with them as their horizons expand. We are a resource for teachers, parents and young adults in book selection and reading motivation ideas, as well as an active supporter of children's literacy in Seattle. We know that readers raise readers, so we also carry a selection of our favorite grown-up titles and current indie picks.
