Tales on Moon Lane has been an invaluable source of support to us an education consultancy. Their expertise and guidance with book choices goes beyond merely book-selling, and they have become a vital part of our work with schools. We don’t ever hesitate to recommend their services to teachers and we know how many schools are as grateful as we are for the bespoke support that they provide.

– Lynn Sear, Director & Consultant, The Literacy Tree

Our first children’s bookshop, Tales on Moon Lane, was founded in 2003 by former literacy co-ordinator, Tamara Macfarlane. As part of the services in the shop Tamara established a specialised supply system for schools and libraries. Leah Chin joined Tamara in 2008 and together they have built up a reputation as a skilled and reliable provider of book services to schools and libraries in the UK. The business consequently branched out as Moon Lane Education Ltd in 2012.

Using the knowledge of Expert Booksellers, Moon Lane Education combines an extensive and academic knowledge of children’s books, and how they lend themselves to the classroom, with an acute awareness of the latest trends and reading habits of today’s children.

We stock a broad range of multi-cultural books and can tailor selections to your needs based on theme or topic. Journeys and Migration, Black History Month and Stories from Around the World are some of our most popular. Many of our books are sourced from around the world to ensure a range that meets the needs of the UK’s vibrant cultural mix.

We purchased a wonderful range of books last year from your store to boost, revive and inspire reading in our school. I am very pleased to say that we were not disappointed. Your book choices and range has simply fuelled a deeper love and enthusiasm for reading in our school. A huge thank you!
