Tsutaya Books Bukit Jalil - bookworm wonderland for all ages opening in Q2 2022

Books do still hold a special place in my heart. What kind of a writer would I be to turn my back on the foundation of my creativity and love for the written word? As a child, books are where our imaginations can run free with the skies and our knowledge being the limit. 

Parents and children would be keen to know that the new soon-to-open Japanese bookstore, Tsutaya Books at Bukit Jalil will have its own children section. Think over 20,000 children's book titles from over 10 genres including children’s literature, cognitive development, picture books and art books, encyclopedias, creative handicrafts and many more. This vast collection would make Bukit Jalil's Tsutaya Books outlet home to the largest collection of kids edutainment section in any bookstore in Malaysia; a place of discovery for budding bibliophiles!

Carrying more than just books - Bukit Jalil's Tsutaya Books will display board games, Montessori and developmental toys, a wider repertoire of stationery items and experiential gifts to intrigue a child’s curious mind.When doors open to Bukit Jalil's Tsutaya Books, the first TSUTAYA BOOKS in Malaysia (targeted for Q2 2022), the children’s section will also be a center for storytelling sessions, hand puppet shows, art demonstrations and mascot visits. Some coveted books and interactive products to explore include:
