Is this anyway to run a children's booksore?

Maybe. The LA Times has a piece on Christy Coyne's Orange County children's two bookstores the called First Page, which she hopes to franchise this year.

Instead of cramming as many books as possible onto towering shelves, the First Page displays books by grade level, face out, taking up
valuable sales space. She doesn't carry Barbie titles, for example. Or Disney books. Or even the "Goosebumps" series. 'Instead of having 15 OK books, we have four fabulous books,' Coyne said. Her stores stock about 2,000 titles each."

I think it sounds like a great idea. Especially if my book is one of the 2,000 titles. [Full disclosure: no idea if her age level goes up to YA, like my Shock Point.]
