This is us...The family behind Little Book Nook


Where it all began...
Hi, I'm Kelli, a mommy & teacher with a passion (possibly bordering on an addiction) for children’s books.
As a teacher, I spent a good chunk of my salary each month buying books to read to my class.

Over the years I built up quite a stack of books, which now belong to my son a.k.a My Quality Control Manager - Charlie.

The passion...
I have always toyed with the idea of turning my passion into a little business. During lockdown we decided to make a big lifestyle change by following

our dream of moving to Cape Town & starting a small side-hustle business ... & so, Little Book Nook was born. We sold our house in Joburg,

I resigned from my job as a Grade R teacher & we moved to Blouberg in February 2021. I currently run Little Book Nook full-time from our home office.

When we're not reading books...

When we're not reading books, we enjoy spending time on the beach, watching beautiful sunsets, eating

ice-cream and going camping in our old vintage caravan, Betty.


Changing the world, one book at a time...

Alongside our passion for books is a strong determination to play our part in making this world a better place.

We stock a range of books that supports our mission - Books about saving the planet, celebrating diversity

and encouraging kindness - We aim to change the world, one book at a time.


Small business, Big dreams...

I still have A LOT to learn about running a business but I have big plans for Little Book Nook &

I do believe that it has the potential to become something truly magical.

I absolutely love what I do, I get SO excited each time I pack an order, knowing that you are stocking your shelves

full of beautiful storytime treasures & wonderful adventures.

Out of stock...

We are a small business & keep a very limited amount of books in stock.

We try to replenish stock weekly but if a title you are interested in is marked "out of stock"

please pop us a message & we will let you know when we will be receiving more.

If you are looking for any specific books that you don't see on our site, pop us a message and we will

do our best to source them for you.

Thank you for your support!

I am so grateful for each & every one of my customers & fellow book nuts who are keeping this dream alive.

Your feedback is very important to us. If you have any suggestions for how we could improve our online store,

anything we could add to our product range or anything we could do better, please do let us know!
