Over 30 years ago, Madeleine Lindley began selling children’s books and teacher resources to schools in and around Greater Manchester from her home in Chadderton, after a decade of struggling to find the best quality books in her role as a primary school teacher specialising in literacy.
Madeleine wanted every child to develop a love of reading and knew that providing teachers with wonderful books was key to doing this. She became a true expert; incredibly knowledgeable and well-respected, and with the opening of the Madeleine Lindley Book Centre, became an authority to the thousands of teachers who trusted her recommendations from the vast number of children’s books published each year.
Today Madeleine Lindley Ltd is run by Madeleine's daughters Amelia and Rachelle, both experts in the field of children's literature. Along wih their team, they continue Madeleine's work of providing teachers around the world with the best books to inspire a love of reading in their schools.
