About our


After the birth of my first child, reading quickly became part of our daily routine. During the pandemic it became even more special due to the extra time we were able to spend together when the world came to a complete stop. As he grew, I needed to purchase some more age-related books suited to him to ensure that I was able to encourage and keep his love for reading alive.

While expanding his bookshelf, I was truly shocked at how expensive children’s books can be and I thought there must be a better way for myself and parents alike and so The Reading Giraffe was born.

As a busy mum, I know how hectic life can be so I wanted to keep The Reading Giraffe simple and easy to use. Hence why all our books are just £3 each regardless of RRP. We offer you brand new books that we have personally hand picked ourselves and can highly recommend.
