About the Manufacturer

The Tidy Books story began when Geraldine was looking for a bookcase for her young daughter Adele, and she found she just couldn't buy the bookcase she had in mind. She wanted a practical, compact bookcase that would be easy for her to use independently, and that would show the books' front covers Originally from Paris, Geraldine moved to train at the renowned Newark School of Violin Making, and then worked at the Royal Academy of Music. After which, she set up her own business making violins, violas and cellos for professional musicians. Traditional bookcases (decorated or not) for children simply made no sense to her. Adele's books, like most children's books were outsize,differently shaped and hard to keep tidy. As you know, children don't choose books from the spine but from the cover, and when a child takes a book from a traditional bookcase, the rest collapse. The idea of a "Tidy Books" bookcase was compelling, so in her spare time, Geraldine began designing a new book storage system in my violin workshop. She created the first "Tidy Books" bookcases for herself and friends, who loved them, and so the Tidy Books business was born. She designed the Tidy Books bookcase to work for children and to be practical, to enable them to explore their books independently.The alphabet on the bookcase was added so that children could learn while playing casually and gradually. Many Parents have told her how much kids love their books and how important they are. The Tidy Books bookcase displays books to their full effect, giving them a central place in the home. Since then Tidy Books has expanded, with more ideas including the Bunk Bed Buddy™ and the Tidy Box™, all designed to fulfil a practical need, look good and be a lasting addition to the family home.

Perfect low profile bookcase for small spaces!!

BoyMom from VA– Verified Buyer

Our nursery space is quite small so I needed something that could fit without a large footprint in the room. This bookcase fits perfectly behind the door (without inhibiting the opening or closing). I love that the books face outward so my son can choose what he'd like to read without taking everything out.

I wasn't a huge fan of the primary colored letters, so I used a scraper (and some muscle) to remove them, sand down the glue remnants, and paint it white. Even with having to do that, we're ordering another for baby #2!

Looks amazing

David from NYC– Verified Buyer

A little on the pricey side for a book shelf, but feels like a great quality piece that is going to last. In a world where every piece of furniture you buy feels like it is made of fake wood, this bookshelf feels quite sturdy (although I'm sure there is some fake wood in there somewhere). Only real negative is that you need to screw it into the wall (it isn't deep enough to stand on its own) so make sure you have a drill. Putting it together is very straightforward, though it takes a little time to put the 40+ screws in place. One very minor point is that if you get the traditional wood color, the yellow letters tend to blend in a bit.

Space saving and adorable

Kelly from Cary, NC– Verified Buyer

I purchased this bookcase recently for my 3 year old son. First off, he absolutely loved it! The quality is excellent, especially considering the price. It is very slim and takes up little floor space, but holds a lot of books! It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for - tons of storage, but leaves lots of room for play. It was also quick and easy to assemble, taking me about 20 minutes to put together while I was chatting on the phone with a friend. I would definitely buy this again. In fact, I nearly bought a second one!

Excellent quality and is beautiful!

KATHERINE from SAN LEANDRO, CA– Verified Buyer

This is all solid wood except for the back board which appears to be pressed sheets of wood. Overall, very sturdy and well worth the price. I am very happy with the height so when my 22 month old is 5, it's not too short for him. Yes, you must anchor it to wall with 2 screws on the top, follow the instructions. It was very easy to assemble. It is beautiful wood and a very solid pressed board backing - very well thought out design, technically and aesthetically. We got this in Clear.

I was so thrilled with this bookcase that I came back to Wayfair and bought the Tidy Books For Get Me Not (whiteboard with knobs for hanging my little man's coats and backpack, also in Clear) -- I do not recommend the For Get Me Not as it is nothing like this bookshelf in quality and workmanship. See my review on the For Get Me Not by Tidy Books.

Adorable bookcase

Gwen from Stoneham, MA– Verified Buyer

We were impressed by how well-made this bookcase is. It requires assembly and the included parts are metal screws and bolts. There are bolts to secure it to the wall. My toddler loves seeing her book covers--she can easily find the book she's looking for. Highly recommend.

Ashleigh from Victoria, TX– Verified Buyer

This is a cute bookshelf and my three year old really likes it. I like how it secures to the wall so there is no need to worry about it tipping over.

I do think it was a bit overpriced and don't like how you can see the dried glue behind the letters.

Wonderful book case

Betisa from Oviedo, FL– Verified Buyer

Great quality, finish and sturdy too. Helps encourage children to reach for books and read because it allows the books to face forward, making it enticing to children. Easy to assemble. I've had it for a couple years and it still looks great.

Love this bookcase!

Carolyn from London, ON– Verified Buyer

This bookcase holds a lot of books. The books are easy to reach for my 4 year old and 2 year old children. Both kids love it and seem even more excited to choose books during our bedtime routine. What I really love is that no matter how small the book is, it is still easy to see and obtain. We put it in my son's room for and I am thinking of getting another one for my daughter's room since we have a lot of books. Great bookcase!

Nice bookcase

Sandra from Montreal, QC– Verified Buyer

Sleek design, spent a whole afternoon to put it together, but instructions were clear enough, not all the books we have fit, I guess I'll have to rotate them every now and then.
