I’m a mom and I created the first Tidy Books bookcase for my daughter back in 2004 in my violin workshop. Ever since, I’ve been designing book shelves and storage for kids which foster their sense of independence, because… Kids Know Best! My original bookcases create an environment for kids to pick and choose their own books and foster their love of books from an early age. I’m 100% committed to timeless, practical and stylish, original designs which are produced ethically. Geraldine, Founder of Tidy Books.

THE ORIGINAL SINCE 2004
Since the first Tidy Books bookcase was created in 2004, all our products have to tick three boxes: they have to be logical to kids; they have to be original; and they have to be stylish to fit in with the home. We are certainly not interested in making things that look trendy. We want to create timeless pieces which can be passed down through the generations. We’re a small business and we are dedicated to always putting our customers first.
HANDMADE WITH SUSTAINABLE WOOD
We don’t use MDF. All our furniture is made to last with sustainable wood and plywood, which is handcrafted to retain its ‘imperfections’. The ecological water lacquer we use allows the wood’s natural beauty to shine through. The way we make our products gives them a different look to the mass-produced alternatives that roll off the production line. You can see all the beautiful knots and grain patterns that give real wood its charm.
GOOD FOR THE PLANET
Like you, we want to look after the planet so being a green business is a no brainer for us. The way we produce Tidy Books products isn’t about showing off our green credentials – it’s about common sense. Not long after starting the business we also discovered that the commonly used acrylic lacquer we coated our furniture with gave off Volatile Organic Compounds that are bad for the environment and can be harmful to health. We immediately changed to water lacquer, a safer alternative. Using water lacquer is part of our commitment to design and make products that look great and are safe for you and the planet. Our products are a lasting investment for your family, and can be passed on. When you buy Tidy Books, you won’t be adding to landfill.
SUPPORT A CHILDRENS CHARITY
Every purchase you make gets more kids reading. We’ve partnered with the British literacy charity, Coram Beanstalk to donate a percentage of every Tidy Books sale, and give the gift of reading to more children. Coram Beanstalk places volunteers in schools to read one to one with children who are struggling with their reading. When you buy a Tidy Books product from our online store, you’re helping Coram Beanstalk make sure more children fulfil their potential, with a book.
💚 BUILT AND DESIGNED TO LAST. I aim for all my designs to be a long lasting investment. As your child grows remove the kids teaching clock and this baby book caddy becomes a grown up magazine rack and book rack storage box. Holds up to 40 picture books of all shapes & sizes. The original Tidy Books kids book case may be more expensive than the imitations, but its sturdy, classic design means it will be a lasting family member. Self assembly.
💚 AWARD WINNING, LOVED BY PARENTS & GRANDPARENTS WORLDWIDE. I created the retro Tidy Books Box for my own children because I wanted them to have their favourite books to hand anywhere in the house. My original Tidy Books Bookcase and portable Book Box changed the way kids books are presented in the home. Join parents and grandparents who want to instill a love of books. Our kids book storage rack is ideal for your child’s early years and will make books a natural part of their world.
💚 ECO-FRIENDLY, HANDMADE, WOODEN MONTESSORI BOOK STORAGE FOR KIDS. Each item is individual with a natural craft look in style and finish. Made from sustainable plywood. No MDF. Non toxic water lacquer finish (low VOCs ) My background as a violin maker means I am passionate about how products are made. We could have coated them with a solvent based acrylic lacquer, but I made an ethical choice. Water lacquer shows the natural imperfections in the wood, and is better for the planet and your kids.
💚 SMALL SUSTAINABLE BRAND, THE ORIGINAL SINCE 2004, Tidy Books, a small company, makes kids book shelves and storage designed by founder and mum Geraldine to foster kids independence, and supports childrens reading charity Coram Beanstalk. Tidy Books changed the way kids books are presented in the home to encourage a love of books from an early age.
