Book Storage for Kids | The Tidy Books Box

Make time for reading! Keep your kid’s favourite books handy with the Tidy Books Box perfect book storage for kids, with a play clock for a lovely introduction to telling the time.

I bought this as a present for my grandson. He loves it as he knows where to find his books and he plays with the clock. His mother loves it as she has somewhere to return the books. A win-win gift.” Ernest

The original Tidy Books Box displays books’ front covers, making it easy for your child to see and pick out a favourite book by themselves, encouraging their love of reading.


"If you read just one story a day with your child, they will have read 1,862 books by the time they start school.  And your child will have an unshakeable love of stories."  Source Stats from School Library Journal Jan 2014


Made from sustainable wood, not MDF, this award-winning book box is finished in our pioneering water lacquer that is better for the producers and the environment.


Ordered this to tame a pile of books under our coffee table. It's well made and my son really enjoys having his own bookcase to look after. Can get a surprising amount of books in there… would definitely recommend. Paula


Designed by a mum, the Tidy Books Box is stylish enough for the living room and sturdy enough for the playroom. It will be a lasting investment for your family - remove the clock and you’ll have a sleek magazine rack!

We aim to tread lightly on the planet, and using water lacquer is just one of the ways that you can be sure Tidy Books products are environmentally friendly.    

All Tidy Books designs are finished in water- based lacquer which is a safe, virtually odour free lacquer which is better for the environment and the health of people who make our products. The finish is natural and very low in VOCs  (Volatile Organic Compounds, which create the odour of paints and varnishes).  It is ideal for children and allergy sufferers.

We’re very proud of our water lacquer: We are far ahead of the accepted standards on safe paints and finishes.  Water Lacquer took time to develop, but we think the benefits are worth it

Eco friendly kids bookcases

 “It makes me extremely happy that the lacquering of our products has no fumes whatsoever. . Sometimes I go to factories where they are lacquering toys for well known brands and the smell is so toxic (even though it passes all the tests for childrens products) , but the workers have to put up with it and who knows what long term consequences it has for their health. People who make products work hard and  we owe it to them to at least not intoxicate them and the planet.” Geraldine, Tidy Books designer and founder.

The water lacquer creates a beautiful natural finish for the wood of our products, and means that the wood grain is just visible.   Your Tidy Books product is unique as no two look precisely the same!

What else do we do to make our products environmentally friendly?

  • All Tidy Books designs are made with wood from sustainable sources.  They are FSC Certified to prove their lighter impact on the planet

  • Our products are made to be a lasting investment for your family, and can be passed on.  We don’t believe in throw-away products, and a Tidy Books design will last you a lifetime.

  • Where possible, our products come flat-packed so they use less energy to transport, which is better for the planet.  This means that our Bookcase and Box are self assembly.  They are easy and straightforward for you to put together, and come with clear instructions.

  • We take our ethical responsibilities seriously at Tidy Books, and we support the work of our chosen charity through a percentage donation of our profits.

Much liked

Bought this for our playgroup. It has received many favourable comments. Children and parents started treating the books more carefully now that they are well presented rather than piled in a plastic box!

Heidi, Playgroup

We bought this box box for our baby son and he loves it, as do the whole family! It's lovely and sturdy and displays books beautifully. The clock is a nice touch and he enjoys playing with it. It took a bit of time to assemble but wasn't difficult. Highly recommend!

Thank you!

Thank you for your prompt delivery of my order - the tidy books box with clock face. I just assembled it very easily myself, thanks to your very clear and helpful instructions and it is all ready to take to (wait for it) Walthamstow, for our grandson’s first birthday! It just seems such a coincidence to see that Walthamstow is where it is designed and so I thought I would write to say thank you and congratulations on such a well-thought out piece of furniture.

Best wishes, Jean Jameson

Great quality

This is one of the nicest items in my child's room! The quality is fantastic, and I love supporting a small, socially responsible company. Would love to find a way to donate one of these to my son's daycare!

best buy

I bought this for my daughters 1st Birthday and it has been excellent value. It looks great in her room and I love the fact that she can access her books and pick which one she wants us to read! Well worth the money.

Fantastic Product

We brought this book box for our 2 & 1 year old, best book case we have ever purchased, fits plenty of books & very sturdy!

Very Pleased

We bought this book box for our 16 month old and are very pleased we did. The quality is brilliant and very straight forward to assemble (despite putting the clock on the wrong end at first :\).

Delivery was very prompt.

We will use this company again; thank you Tidy Books

Perfect for living room

I recently bought one of these for my 2.5 yr old twins. Before, they hardly looked at their books, but now they can see and choose them easily they read all the time--it's brilliant.
We had some problems assembling the book box because the parts didn't fit together, but Tidy Books was very helpful and sent us a new set. Would recommend!


I bought one of these boxes about two years ago for my son. It is sturdy and well made and we can fit masses of books in it.
Am now going to buy another for his little brother.
I imagine the boxes will last forever, and when the children are older i will use one for my cookery books!
