|The Great Green Room, at Blue Marble Books in Fort Thomas/Blue Marble|
Fort Thomas's own Blue Marble Books has been named one of the nation's best kids' bookstores in a recent survey.
The online magazine BuzzFeed, who conducted the survey, asked its nearly 3 million Facebook fans to nominate their favorite children's bookstores. The list names 14 shops from cities across the United States, including New York City, Denver, Portland, Or., and San Diego, among others.
Tina Moore opened Blue Marble Books in Fort Thomas in 1979, and in those 30 years has accumulated an impressive résumé of awards and recognitions, including a Silver Gertie Award, being named a Northern Kentucky Woman of the Year, and co-founding the Association of Children's Booksellers.
Here's the full list of the nation's most popular kids' bookshops.
