How The Friendly Bookshelf is Building a Community Beyond the Page


One of the most special things about The Friendly Bookshelf is that it inspires children to find the confidence to share their own stories — Just like Bibli! Through The Friendly Bookshelf’s “Everyone Has a Story Campaign” all children are given a place to share their story through online video submissions. Every child’s story is then added onto Bibli’s virtual shelves to be read and celebrated by other children. In this way, the story is actively building a kind and inclusive community where everybody — and every bookshelf! — belongs! Take a look at some of the amazing and inspiring children who have already shared their stories!






Want to learn more about how The Friendly Bookshelf is inspiring kindness, confidence, inclusion, AND community beyond the final page? Stop by thefriendlybookshelf.com where your child can also submit their story to be included on Bibli’s shelves! And if you’d like to support this mission, click here to preorder The Friendly Bookshelf and help bring Bibli’s story to life!
