People are kind and say some nice things about their book buying experiences with The Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore. We’ve also built up a wonderful community of Kiwi authors writing for children and teens.
I’m humbled and honoured to share their words with you.
The Kiwi Kids’ Bookstore
I have been a customer since the beginning of 2021, and they won't be getting rid of me! I love the opportunity to support New Zealand authors and The Kiwi Kids' Bookstore makes it so easy. Their website is well designed and inviting, with all the information right there, and is super easy to navigate. With the recently updated and streamlined processing of orders, I received both the orders I have already placed this year with outstanding speed, and they were excellently packaged with thoughtfulness to the environment. Kate Gordon's correspondence always keeps us up-to-date with new releases, promotions and comes with a personal touch that is very thoughtful and much appreciated. I can't wait to see how The Kiwi Kids Bookstore evolves next.
I have had the pleasure of being associated with Kate Gordon of The Kiwi Kid's Bookstore since February 2021. During this time, Kate has worked tirelessly and passionately to promote New Zealand authors and New Zealand books. She is constantly coming up with new and exciting ideas to connect tamariki with New Zealand stories. As an author, I really appreciate being part of this unique online bookstore and I know that new readers have connected with and purchased my stories through the website. My older titles are no longer on the shelves in retail shops; her bookstore fills a gap in the industry perfectly. As a librarian and customer, she has provided schools with a one stop shop for New Zealand books which we might have otherwise missed. Since I have been with her, she has made improvements for the authors she represents in terms of online presence and advertising, and improvements for her customers with specials and combined postage and packaging, (which is fantastic for librarians with small budgets). Because of Kate and her bookstore, more New Zealand stories are in the hands of New Zealand tamariki. With new New Zealand authors joining all the time, and with the Kate's inspired ideas, I know the bookstore will flourish. Kate's passion is infectious. Her communication with her team is excellent and her attention to detail and professional approach to all she does, is outstanding.
Selling through the Kiwi Kids Bookstore has been a hugely worthwhile experience for me as an author. Not only has it given greater visibility to my work, it has also felt personally validating. Kate has chosen to promote New Zealand authors and place value on our work. In a cluttered, competitive market, she has elevated the status of homegrown talent, and this has been of enormous value to all of us. Kate never misses an opportunity to promote the books in her store in all manner of creative ways. While authors can get in with the business of writing, we know Kate is working tirelessly to champion our work.
