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.
