Reading is perhaps one of the most important things you can do with your children, and your children can do for themselves. Rather you put up shelves, lay out books, mount brackets, use spice racks to hang books, or use any other method, keep a book in site.
Here's a picture our our girls room! These shelves were easy to make and hold about a dozen books. The book shelf on top of their dresser hold several more.
Our nursery has books shelves at their height one is filled entirely with books, the other is filled with small buckets of toys. This gives them the option of reading any time they want.
Our school room down stairs has an entire wall lined with cube bookshelves and books sorted by age, and category. It's fun to pretend to read full novels even when they can't quite understand them yet. The pretending is wonderful practice.
