 Here's some background!

Childcare professional for over 19 years and mother of three beautiful children, Hayley, the founder of the Tree Top Book Shop, moved to New Hampshire from England with her family seven years ago.

Hayley qualified as a Nursery Teacher in 1995 and over the last 22 years has gained a vast amount of experience with children from birth to 12 years of age. Her career has been varied, including being a personal nanny for twins, working with children for an exclusive sailing company in Greece, and managing a pre-school.

More recently, her last years in England were spent working in a small chain of private day nurseries, where she was not only a Nursery Teacher but Quality Assurance Coordinator, Professional Childcare Trainer and eventually became a Company Director, overseeing the operational aspects of the nurseries at an executive level. 

During her many years as a childcare practitioner, and with a passion for reading, Hayley has tried and tested hundreds of books and stories that not only enhance childrens' growth and development, but that are also funny and wildly entertaining! The products being promoted and sold here at Tree Top Book Shop, have been hand selected for their quality, style and overall appeal to children of all ages.

The idea for the Tree Top Book Shop came when Hayley began reading to her childrens' classes during 'parent read aloud' sessions, where she realized the selection of books she chose were mostly unheard of by the teachers in this area!

To enable families to share the experience that hundreds of children throughout the United Kingdom have enjoyed, Hayley has chosen a selection of unique titles (some well known, some less familiar), to enhanced children's imaginative development. The accompanying merchandise, inspired by her favorite authors, has been specifically selected to enthuse the use of role play within reading.

The Tree Top Book Shop retail store opened in March 2017, and sells not only books, but puppets, Safari LTD figurines, story sacks, Melissa & Doug items, plush toys and a selection of puzzles and games too! It is also home to daily story-times under our much loved story-time tree!

Tree Top Book Shop is a great place to buy gifts, come for story-time, or just to browse (free gift wrapping service is available too!) We hope to see you soon and please enjoy!

Customer Feedback 

Nancy B - Cutest shop ever. So nice to have such a quality shop in our small town. Charming owner who spent lots of time with customers.

Kimberly LC - Tried out this shop for the first time yesterday for story time and fairy house decorating. My kids loved it! I ended up buying some birthday gifts for an upcoming kid party and was pleasantly surprised with the prices being so reasonable and they even do free gift-wrapping! Also the customer service and down to earth family feel was amazing! We will definitely be back to visit again soon.

Ashley LWhat an adorable book store we stumbled upon! My two year old daughter and 3 year old niece were enchanted by the the fairy themed day! The staff was lovely and so good to my littles, the selection of books and toys was great and the prices were even better. We will certainly be back for story time!

Kassie HDI was there today with my little one. It was perfect! Lucy is only 5mo old and it was great for us because the owner had a place for me to change her and she was so accommodating since I also had to feed her. The story we read was adorable. It was so pleasant and lovely. We will be back. Great little spot!

Nancy BCustomer Service, Environment, Quality, Selection, Wait Time ... Love shopping here... it's the best.. great service ( thank you Hayley) so accommodating!!!

Molly F - I visited the shop for the first time today, and I couldn't be more impressed. Everything was displayed beautifully, along with little puppets or stuffed animals to accompany book purchases. This is the perfect place to get a book gift for a child. If that wasn't good enough, the woman at the store played with my son while I shopped and then gift-wrapped the books that I bought. We will be back for sure!

Zia- My daughter will be the mouse from the book If you give a mouse a cookie for Halloween. The sellers original post was a backpack. I messaged her if she could make it a tote. She responded immediately and made a tote for me. Received the tote in less than a week. My daughter will use it as trick or treat bag and then for carrying books later. It's well made, good quality and adorable. The seller is wonderful, quick to respond, and ship. Well made product. Highly recommend.

Maureen M - Love that Hayley; always is available for my grand kids!
