Welcome to Spark Books!

Hi Friends!

We are so glad you are here! This has been an incredibly challenging year for all of us for so many reasons. We can't thank you enough for sticking by us and buoying us through this hard time. We are eternally grateful!

If this is your first time here, Welcome! And let me tell you a little bit about us :-) Spark Books is Pittsburgh's only children's bookstore located in Aspinwall, PA. We carry books from a diverse lineup of authors and illustrators with a particular love of beautifully illustrated stories and books with all the feels for infants through tweenhood. We also have a small selection of YA and adult books. In addition, we carry a thoughful collection of puzzles, games and art supplies that both kiddos and their caregivers can get excited about doing together.

A quick FYI about this website: At this time, the books on this platform are ones we are able to procure for you but are not necessarily on our shelves. We hope to have a real time inventory for you in the coming months (Hopefully coming Sept 2021 :-) Because we may or may not have your book in stock, we kindly ask that you wait for an email from us before coming down to pick up your order. If you have any questions about your order or stock availability, please don't hesitate to reach out to us either by email ( or via telephone (412-781-1987)

Take Care, Stay Safe and Happy Reading!
