Best of 2013: Children’s Bookstore

Orange County’s A Whale of a Tale Children’s Bookshoppe

Independent A WHALE OF A TALE CHILDREN’S BOOKSHOPPE stocks the very best reads, helping turn youngsters into bookworms. High-profile authors—Laura Bush, J.K. Rowling, and “Weird Al” Yankovic (“My New Teacher and Me”), to name a few past visitors—give readings, and owner Alexandra Uhl arranges for them to speak at local schools, too. Uhl recently moved to a new location and has cut back the store’s hours, but her commitment to children’s literature is unswerving. 15 Hubble, Irvine, 949‑854‑8288,
