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!

  • Made from sustainable wood with no MDF; better for the planet.

Flush on the wall, books are tidy and all in sight/within reach
tall books don't fit in (which most children books are)

I love it have wanted one for ages. The letters are lovely and bright. And its very simple to assemble
Two of the screws were no good but luckily I did have two spare in the pack. Also would be nice if had more hight space in the middle shelfs like the top and bottom as cant stand books in there upright have to lay them on there side

A good looking and sturdy bookcase that makes it easy and fun for little people to access their library.
A couple of the pre-drilled holes weren't in quite the right place requiring me to drill new ones and the cheap Allen key left me with sore fingers for hours after tightening the 50 or so bolts - a higher quality tool with a proper handle would really help.

Fitting your bookcase to the wall

The bookcase is designed to rest on the floor,  at about 5cm from the wall.    For safety, you will need to screw the top of the bookcase into the wall.   The bookcase will lean towards the wall at a slight angle, leaving space for dado rails and skirting boards.


Wear and tear might mean a letter goes missing from your bookcase.  If it happens, get in touch and we’ll make sure your bookcase has a complete alphabet once more.

For your child’s safety, we leave the screws uncovered. The bookcase is designed for very small children to use, and a cap or cover on the screws would be a choking hazard.  

The heights of the shelves mean small and large books fit neatly.

Small books don’t get lost, and large books have a home on the differently sized shelves.  The dimensions of each shelf are:

  • Top, open shelf:  height 31cm
  • Second shelf down: height 23cm
  • Third shelf down: height 18cm
  • Bottom, fourth shelf: height 27cm
  • Just a reminder, each shelf is 77cm wide and 7cm deep.  

“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." Geraldine, Founder and Designer of Tidy Books
