Tree House Books is on a mission to grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in Philadelphia.

Tree House Books is a literacy center and non-profit bookstore based in North Philadelphia that supports children ages 0-16 and their families in building literacy skills.

What makes us unique is that our programs move beyond strictly academics to include a social, emotional, and cultural focus.  In addition to providing access to a wide variety of books, we foster healthy attitudes towards reading and help our participants expand their self-concept through awareness of the opportunities reading provides.  We also engage the community in holistic literacy activities that reflect our community’s  rich ethnic, racial, and cultural heritage, giving us all as readers time and space to examine issues we find relevant to our lives.

Read your way into becoming the person you want to be.
