About Us

Wee Bookworms is an Online Independent Children’s Bookshop & monthly UK Book Subscription Club for kids and teens.

All our books are carefully curated by our Child Development Expert & Wee Bookworms Founder Madeleine Neilly as well as by our fantastic team of bookworms.

How It All Started

Wee Bookworms bookshop

Madeleine is the founder of Wee Bookworms and she is super, duper passionate about books. She has a whole collection of antique books at home that she regularly admires!

On a rainy day in Northern Ireland, Madeleine decided that it was time to fulfil her dream and, with a lot of help from her parents and husband, she opened her own children’s bookshop in the small seaside town of Warrenpoint.

The timing wasn’t perfect as the Wee Bookworms bookshop was swept right into the middle of a pandemic! This is why the Wee Bookworms Team decided to take a big step and move online. 

All of us here at Wee Bookworms, have a deep love for books and storytelling.
