The Tidy Books Kid’s Bookshelf - Grows a reader.


Encourage your child’s love of books and get them ready for learning with the award- winning Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase. 

Unlike others, the Tidy Books bookcase is easy for children to use because our original design is practical and makes books enticing. Is an ideal first library.  

You won’t find another children’s bookcase which matches our quality, eco-credentials or style.   The front-facing shelves allow your child to pick out books for themselves, so you are more than likely to find your child curled up, reading!

  • Holds 85 books of all shapes and sizes.  
  • Dimensions: 30.3 x 2.8 x 45.3 inches.
  • Tactile 3D alphabet encourages natural letter recognition.
  • Made from sustainable wood with no MDF; better for the planet.
  • Quality limewood which will not bend under the weight of books.
  • Back panels mean books cannot slip down behind the bookcase.
  • Handmade finish.*
  • Finished in our pioneering water lacquer which is safe, virtually odorless, and better for the planet.  
  • Safe for young children; fixes securely to the wall.  Fixings supplied.
  • Self-assembly with full instructions supplied.  
*Our designs are hand made and finished in water lacquer.  We could have coated them with a solvent based acrylic, but we made an ethical choice.  Water lacquer is a safe, eco-friendly finish that shows the natural imperfections in the wood, which is better for the planet and your kids. Find out more details about our water lacquer and handmade finish at the Tidy Book's manufacturer on our manufacturer page.

Our product story


"Everything I make is designed to be fun and enjoyable for children, to draw them in and foster their sense of independence.  

I created the Tidy Books bookcase because ordinary children's bookcases decorated or not made no sense to me - books fall out. Plus how can you put such thin books of different sizes on an ordinary shelf?  A box doesn't work either as the kids can’t see the covers.  I wanted something that works well for kids and their books and looks good too, so I created the original Tidy Books children's bookcase for my daughter, Adele in 2004.  And this changed the way books are presented to children in the home.

I make sure all my designs are stripped back to keep them looking stylish so they blend easily into a home. It’s about creating a timeless classic that can be passed down through the generations.

My designs give kids the freedom to discover their world by themselves- because kids really do know best."

Geraldine, Founder and Designer of Tidy Books
