Reading is something that has always come naturally to me. I was a total bookworm as a kid and if I wasn’t swimming in the pool (it was Florida after all) I had my nose in a book. So, I’m sure you can imagine how much I want to share that same joy and passion with my own children. Until now, I’ve basically used a few large baskets around the house where we kept books that pulled from for story time. However, with a baby on the way, a bookcase from Tidy Books was just the answer to get us organized and talking about how to share our books with “baby brother”.
Once the bookcase was in its place, I took some time one morning to gather up all our books. I then brought Jake into the room to show him his new bookcase. He was immediately enamored (and yes he has a wild bed head issue that refuses to be tamed!)! We then went through and decided which books we would give to his baby brother and which books were for him as a “big boy”. I was surprised how willing he was to share his baby books, ones that we’ve read hundreds of times together snuggled in bed or in my lap, and how he really loved placing his favorites on the shelves. Now that he’s entering this next kid stage, being able to see all his books and select one to read and look at on his own is great!
The Tidy Books bookcase is just the ticket to get us excited for reading and for Jake to feel like a part of the process. He also loves pointing out the letters he is learning along the way. M for Mommy is his current favorite, awwww.
The best part is that these bookcases are designed to be really safe for children securing directly to the wall (this step is a must) and made with rounded corners. It uses a non-toxic, eco friendly lacquer and sustainable wood. And Tidy Books has adorable portable book boxes for those that might want to be a bit more mobile too. All would make great gifts and considering that Grandpa put ours together I think it gets two thumbs up from the whole family!
