If you want to foster a love of reading in your little ones, set up a cozy spot where they can enjoy spending time with their favorite books! Here are a few tips to create a reading nook for the littlest bibliophiles in your family.
The perfect reading nook is one that’s visible and close to the action but clearly set aside for enjoying books. Hello Fifth blogger, teacher, and mom of three Jillian Shafer set up her classroom library using the Cali play rug as a comfy way to define the reading space. In tighter spots, try the Lola play runner!
Whether it’s rolling crates, traditional bookshelves, or those IKEA spice rack wall shelves that Pinterest loves, adequate easy-to-access storage will be key to keeping your book nook tidy. Mother.ly suggests storage that lets children see the covers of their books so they can easily find their favorites.
