As a Mother of 3, I realised the importance of books in the development of children of all ages. I have always had a love of books especially in reading to and with my Children. Second Treehouse on the Left is a space where children of all ages can develop a love of reading and enter into a world of imaganitive play - bonding with parents and siblings as they do so. In a world where everything is turning electronic, more and more people are replacing books with iPad or Kindles. Story time is turning into tv time. Teenagers are more often than not glued to phones and wouldn't even know where to find a book.

Books offer so much to both the young and old. Not only can they be entertaining and educational but they offer a form of relaxation and escape. They open up a wide world of possibilities and can help create endless imagination.

Reading stories is vital in a child's development and is a great tool for bonding with your child. Reading has many benefits for children:


  • Sitting down with a book provides children with a time for quiet and calmness in their busy lives

  • Stories can stimulate  imagination and play

  • Reading provides parents with more opportunities to bond with their children

  • Stories provoke curiosity and discussion

  • Books provides inspiration, thought and reflection

  • Picture books help readers to develop an appreciation for art and writing

  • Reading a variety of books exposes children to a wide range of language features and vocabulary

  • Listening to stories assists in the development of  literacy skills and language development

  • Books and stories fill a child’s mind with knowledge

I have decided to share my love of books and the fun they can bring to all, whether new or previously loved, through my Bookstore. 

A very Special Thank you to Francesca P Cockayne Art for our lovely Treehouse Artwork.
