• Storybook Cove is an independently owned bookstore that was founded by Janet Bibeau (a former teacher and school librarian) in Hanover, Massachusetts (south of Boston) in 1990. Our goal has always been to provide quality books and book related toys and gifts to children and to those who love and care for them -- parents, teachers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends. In our "bricks-and-mortar" store, we strive to provide friendly, knowledgeable service by helping customers pick just the right book for the young reader in their lives and for themselves.  While we began as a children's bookstore, over the years our adult section has grown to its current (2023) size of about 30% of our in-store offerings.
  • We offer an in-store "Book Club Card/Preferred Customer Program" -- for every 10 books (or book related items) you purchase, you receive the average of the amount you have spent as a credit in the store.
  • We also provide Subscription Boxes for children and adults.
  • We feature many non-fiction books and other items of interest to teachers. We also offer a Teacher Discount on all book purchases.
  • While you may order books from us through this page 24/7 (hours/days), we WELCOME and ENCOURAGE those of you in the area (permanently or just visiting) to follow the Directions and come in during our store hours.
  • In addition to quality children's books, we sell "MORE" including many specialty toys and games.  While the "& More" are not all available for order through this web site, we have a wide selection in the store and welcome e-mail and telephone call inquiries.
