Keep kids' books organized and visible with @TidyBooks Book Box


For the past few weeks, home organization has been the word of the day around our house. We have a lot to do, but my office is the first order of business. Work has been busy, and as my mom always said, “Organized desk, organized mind.” She told me that when I was in 2nd grade, but it still holds true now.

But using my office for work leaves me with one problem: the kids. I’m home all day with them, and there are times when the need to work clashes with the need to pay them some attention. The plan? A reading area, in my office, where my son can spend some quiet reading time while his baby sister naps. It’s the perfect plan!

Right? Please tell me it’s the perfect plan…

Anyway, I have a secret weapon up my sleeve to keep that part of my office organized, too.

Our Book Box from Tidy Books is helping us keep tons of childrens books neatly contained and accessible while leaving the covers visible! It’s designed a lot like our Tidy Books Bookcase, which has worked like a charm for promoting reading. Each time he walks by, the covers catch his eye and, all of a sudden, he’s grabbing a book.

I’m not sure if it’s his age, development level, or an effect of the Bookcase, but we’ll take it!

The Book Box is like the Bookcase in other ways, too. The quality is beyond compare. This was a dream to assemble, even with the kids “helping.” Just like our bookcase, the quality of the wood is top notch and the finish is flawless. I don’t assemble many things these days and think about my grandkids playing with them, but I did with the Book Box!

And how cute is the clock? This might be the only place my son sees a traditional clock with hands, and he’s surprisingly interested in learning how to tell time on it. Right now, he’s a big fan of eightynineteen o’clock.

    So pleased to find businesses that not only have lovely high-quality items but also have morals and ethics. It’s refreshing to see concern for the environment and for children’s health, and support of a charity for children as well. Bravo. Thanks ABCs & garden peas, for sharing and endorsing businesses like Tidy Books. This is the first time I’ve visited this blog, and looking forward to reading more!

    • Wendy says

      Thanks for your comment, Heidi! I’m very proud to be an ambassador for Tidy Books. I agree with you that companies like this are refreshing! I live in an area with limited options, so I do have to shop those big box stores sometimes, but if given the choice, I’ll support small business every time!

    I have been coveting the The Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase – Kids book storage Natural Lowercase for awhile. I love the way the books face out and don’t get all beat up like they do when I throw them in our book “bin.” It also seems like it has a very slim profile. I hope to buy a full bookshelf from tidy books soon. eightnineteen is also popular around here, so I know my little guy would love the clock on this one too.

    Love this children’s bookcase! I do wish they offered a more grown-up version for older kids. My son is about to turn 7 and I would love one for his room, but I’m afraid he will outgrow the abc theme pretty soon. That said, I love their ethics and I have two smaller girls who will be in the abc phase for a while. :)

    The book box is so cute!!! I’ve been looking for a small shelf to put our board books on now and for easy access to my son’s favorites as he grows. This looks perfect!

    I would love The Tidy Books Childrens Bookcase in natural with the lowercase letters on it for my grandchildren – I vividly remember one very similar at my kindergarten over 60 years ago and how much I loved sitting by it and reading all the books!

  6. Lucy Mayer says

    Simply adore the children’s bookcase – would absolutely love one! One day, I’m determined to get one one day… :)

  7. Sarah Queenan says

    I love the full bookcases with the books all front-facing, reminds me of the library corner in my primary school’s classrooms!

  8. Janet W. says

    I’d love to have the “Around the World” Bunk Bed Buddy. This would be perfect on the wall near my grandson’s bed!

  9. Casey says

    I love the The Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase – Kids book storage in Natural Lowercase! Our daughter has so many books and I have a hard time keeping them organized!

  10. April G says

    I also really like the The Tidy Books Children’s Bookcase – Kids book storage Blue Lowercase! It would be cute in my son’s room.

  11. Lauren B says

    I love this book box!!! My 21 month old has a billion books stacked in the corner of our living room and this would be a great way to keep them organized and teach him the importance of putting things where they belong.
