The Buttonhole Press was established in 2018 to publish a series of six traditional, enchanting stories for children -The Button Collection.


While our little books are perfect to enjoy reading  aloud with pre-school children, they also build confidence in early readers up to Year 2 and can be used as a development tool for creative writing skills up to Year 6.

We were delighted to add The Christmas Button Story (limited edition) in October and we are now working closely with libraries and teachers to produce an educational resource pack to support KS1 and KS2.

We are now running creative workshops following the theme of each book - perfect for libraries, schools and brownies/cubs. Please get in touch we'd love to hear from you.

Buy these delightful books individually or as a set online from Waterstones, Foyles and Amazon or from The Cobham Bookshop.
