Tidy Books ABC Bookcase, White

Product information

This ingenious bookcase allows you to display books so that children can see the front covers, rather than the spine. It has alphabet front panels which help to keep books secure on the shelves as kids make their selection. So, not only will the ABC bookcase help to keep books tidy, but with such a clear display and presence it will also hopefully encourage a real love of books.

Please note: This Tidy Books bookcase is not freestanding and must be attached to a wall before use.

When children get older, you can turn the alphabet-fronted panels around to make a sleek looking rack, perfect for CDs or magazines.

Water based paint has been used to give it a finishing touch. This type of paint offers excellent durability, and the emission of less odours, and reduced toxins so it's healthier for everyone including those with allergies.

Dimensions: H115 x W77 x D7cm.

Editors Notes

Traditional bookcases are not designed with children in mind. Children's books are outsize, differently shaped, hard to keep tidy and prone to fall over when one is removed. And of course, children don't choose books from the spine but from the cover. Tidy Books bookcases are designed to work for children and to be practical and 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.

Q & As

Tidy Books ABC Bookcase 4.6 5 22 22
A lovely bookcase A lovely bookcase, really pleased with the shade of blue and the quality. It was also really easy to put together. It looks great in my little boy's bedroom. 19 March 2014
Good Quality product I bought this for my Grandson, it is a good space saving design and takes many sizes of books. It is fairly easy to assemble BUT mine came without an allen key which is necessary to assemble. fortunately I had one that fitted but without this a very good product would still be in the box in bits. Hopefully all others come with a key, but worth checking. 31 December 2013

Useful and looks great We purchased the ABC bookcase to ensure my daughters books are always available and in the space we use most in the house. This bookcase not only does the job, it looks great and was really easy to put together. 09 October 2013
Picking a book without chucking them all on the floor My 20 month old daughter loves looking through all her books to decide which one she would like us to read, we no longer spend time picking them all up from the floor afterwards. She even likes putting them back on the shelves! 19 December 2012
excellent product lovely bookshelf, very easy to put together and all of my sons books fit in nicely. great that the books are displayed cover forward. Definitely needs to be screwed to a wall though as could be easily pulled over otherwise. A great buy. 28 October 2012
