Our Story


Bookworm first opened its doors well over 15 years ago as Dubai's first wholly independent Children's Bookshop. We wanted to concentrate all our efforts and expertise to enable us to offer the community a wonderful selection of children’s books.

Bookworm's first shop, conveniently located in The Al Safa Complex (Park'n'Shop) on Al Wasl Road, Jumeirah, is where we steadily built up a loyal clientele of schoolchildren and their parents and teachers. Ask any family who has seen their children grow up in Dubai, and no doubt they will know Bookworm! 

Branching out to serve a wider community in the newer areas of the city, our second location in Town Centre, Meadows, opened in 2009 and we were able to bring our concept of the neighbourhood Children's Bookshop to even more families in Dubai.
