5 Kid-Friendly Ways To Store Kids Books

Seeing the little reading corner SouleMama created at the top of her stair landing got me thinking about carving out a space for my own little one (see Monday’s post). AFter creating the girl’s reading nook inspiration board, I started thinking about organizing all the books.

In my experience, it’s best for the books to be accessible to little hands (although I do have a few special books stored in high places to prevent the inevitable rips, crumples and nibbles.). Here’s a short list of five storage options for your kid’s books. All of them make it easy for kids to find something to read and they fit in stylishly with your home's decor.

Note: The book bag may not be great for long-term storage, but it’s great for holding favorite books, separating those on a certain topic (such as potty training!) or carrying them back and forth to the library as explained on the Inchmark blog.
