Get your orders in today as the shop will close until 4th September. There are works happening both inside and outside our little book nook so we are taking a break to allow the builders to take over! Place your orders today to get your parcel before we go...
Something special in the shop today, a search and find puzzle adventure through 13 magical worlds! In an old toyshop, Sophie and Jack find a dusty book with a glowing key. They turn the key and WHOOSH! They’re inside the book, at the start of a wonderful adventure. But how will they ever get out again? Great for 4-7 yr olds.
Hello!! Due to some major roadworks outside the shop we are going to be closing for two weeks and subsequently will shut the online shop for a little break! Place your orders by this Friday 17th and we will get them out to you before we go. You can still place orders after this date and they will be sent after the 4th September 😃 THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT 🙏🏻
Sorry guys - SOLD OUT you grabbed em quick! I will shot when we have restocked. Swipe ➡️ to see inside this awesome body book. I don’t go overboard stocking too many of the same thing, especially if I find one that does the job...it’s just like shopping in Aldi, why have 5 types of beans when you just need 1. THIS is a great lift the flap body book full of brilliant facts and pictures for 3-7 year olds! Link in bio.
Anyone else seen “The Meg” at the cinema?? We went last night and suffice to say special effects have come on a bit since Jaws 🦈 For any wildlife lovers we have a whole section of the website dedicated to furry friends and crawly critters. Just click the clink in the bio!
Now showing on my stories and will be available to buy later today! The People Awards is a brilliant non gender divisive book of inspiration spanning past and present, male and female, bravery, technology, freedom fighting, creativity, science and everything in between. See stories for more!
👋🏼 hello! It’s my birthday today which means I’m in a great mood. Whilst I am bound by annoying margins and can’t discount much, I can give little treats. If you order today I will pop in a free bag, badge and something else that takes my fancy... take your chance!!! 🎉🎈🎁
Britta gets it right every time, let’s raise our children as part of a united world. “Under The Same Sky” is a beautiful book of togetherness and inclusivity told through the lives of animals around the world. We are lucky to still have a few signed copies! Thanks @britta_teckentrup. 😄Link in bio.
Hey everyone 👋🏼 welcome to new followers and hi to all my faithfuls! I’m Jenny, aka book lady and in the absence of many recent story posts I thought I would show my face to newbies. ➕I’m 35, I have two kiddies, one husband @forest_hill_father and live in SE London. ➕I have a background in PR and Copywriting, I never worked in publishing and have self taught myself running a business and the book trade. ➕I’m genuinely flying by the seat of my pants but I love people and good feelings and I’m trying to raise the best kids I can. ➕I’m crazy about beautiful illustration and the power of amazing kids books to give children the tools to grow up deep, strong, empathetic and fun individuals. Thank you for supporting Smallprint, for anyone who has bought once or multiple times, for anyone who hasn’t bought but follows and likes and those who share. Small indie bookshops are struggling and often make zero cash on a daily basis but I’m strangely addicted to keeping going! 🤔😆 enjoy the bookish ride. 👍🏻👏🏻🙏🏻
Check out my new favourite book! On the surface ‘Ready to Ride’ is a story of a young boy getting the courage to ride his bike without stabilisers, very useful tool in our parenting arsenal huh!? What’s also great is that it appeals to any kid who needs to develop strength, belief and confidence in anything...with a lovely message about freedom and friendship. What’s not to love?? Watch out tomorrow as I show you some inside stories! Link in bio.
Another day another awesomely inspiring role model for our kids! In this book, two great-grandchildren (aged 7 and 6) have asked their grandmother 15 questions about the man they remember as Grandad and the world remembers as Nelson Mandela. They learn that he was a freedom fighter, a President and a Nobel Peace Prize-winner, and that they can continue his legacy in the world today. Seen through a child's perspective, and authored jointly by Zazi Mandela, Ziwelene Mandela and Ambassador Zindzi Mandela, this amazing story will be told as never before. It’s beautifully illustrated by Sean Qualls and is a book that everyone should own. Link in bio.
