Displaying children's books on a shelf like this not only keeps them off the floor, it highlights the lovely covers. Plus, younger children are more apt to read when they can pick from their favorites easily.
It's easy to pile books on a shelf, but corralling them inside a wooden crate adds so much more interest. This is an especially great solution for brightly colored covers that will pop inside the dark wooden interior.
This display is a similar idea, but the unit is carried from floor to ceiling, giving children room to grow their library.
Creating a book pocket like the one shown here is easy with a bit of fabric, a couple of dowels and some brackets. Not only will it hold your child's current favorites, but it can add color to the room too.
When storing children's books on a bookshelf, consider integrating some decorative items just as you would in more grownup spaces. They'll add interest and keep the area from becoming too boring.
Look around your home for items such as baskets and crates where you can store books. These items are easily placed next to the sofa or your favorite chair for convenient storytimes.
Children's books come with the most fantastic covers in the prettiest shades. Why not arrange them according to color to spice up the bookcase a bit?
