Children First Global Book Fair


Join us for our biggest event of the year!  A day celebrating literacy in all its forms.  Browse new and secondhand books for children of all ages in English, German, French, Danish, Russian, Spanish and Italian!

Now announcing our programme!

We’re delighted to be partnering with Academicus and Simply Theater to provide fun activities for children throughout the day.

Join Dr. Janice Sych for a talk about nutrition during infancy (0-18 months), Dr. Wolfram Hötzenecker for a talk about allergic diseases in children and author Chantal Panozzo for tips on kid-friendly activities within Switzerland that are both fun and cultural.

Cooking demonstrations, lunch for children, a cake sale and authentic British scones and bagels will nourish you. Face painting will be provided by Happy Faces. Rain or shine, this will be a great day out for the whole family.
