Make a Big Book Nook on a Little Budget

Children get more excited about reading when they have their own books—and when they have a special place to read them.

Help your child create a personal “book nook” by providing a bookcase, or giving your child a shelf to use in a family bookcase. Then put soft pillows or a comfortable chair nearby to create a cozy reading spot.

You may be able to find inexpensive books at thrift shops and on bookstore discount tables. Yard sales can be another excellent option. Your library may also sell books that are no longer circulating. You can also make scrapbooks of articles you find on topics that might interest your child.

Encourage your child come up with a system to sort and arrange reading material in the book nook—books about animals, holiday books, favorite books, for example.
