Little Bird Library

If you’ve ever visited our home, you know already that books are a huge part of our lives. Our wish for our children is that they grow up surrounded by great books, so that they can also learn the joy of disappearing into a fantastic story, and having future dreams moulded by fictional adventures.

We’ve documented our ever-growing children’s library, in an attempt to reduce duplication, and to encourage our friends and family to share their favorite books. If you’ve got one to send, we ask that you also include an inscription in the cover, so that over the years, there are always friendly faces in the bookshelves.
