We all want our kids to love books. Reading to your kids at bedtime can be a wonderful bonding experience. It’s one of those activities that makes you pat yourself on the back and feel like you’ve finally nailed it as a parent. Imagine yourself as the best mother the world has ever known, patiently reading and encouraging cognitive development.

But, if you have a child at home, you know how important (although a bit challenging!) it is to keep the little one’s room in order. After all, to teach them about organization from an early age, it’s essential that the house has designated spaces to store each thing (so, it’s much easier to ask the little one to help you tidy up, isn’t it?).

Storybooks, fairytales, and games are great for encouraging reading and development in children. However, there are so many options that it is difficult to think of a way to leave them all accessible to the little ones and still in order. With that in mind, we’ve separated some ideas to organize the books in the little room.

You’ll see that there are a variety of possibilities for organising children’s books, from those designed for spacious homes to others perfect for smaller flats. With a little creativity, in fact, other parts of the house can be transformed into these holders, such as crates.

Traditional Furniture: Low furniture is a good option to store the children’s books because in general, these pieces have several divisions that help in the organization. A detail that we really like about these pieces of furniture are the wheels underneath, which allow you to take your child’s books to different rooms without any trouble (and also makes cleaning the house easier).

Shelves on the Walls: Shelves are pieces that never go out of fashion and are great alternatives for those who have little space at home. The cool thing is to place them at a lower height so that the child himself has the freedom to handle his books. Ah, and for those who like to innovate, you can even make different shelves, with crates and baskets (see the pictures below to see how cool it looks!).

Baskets: It can be as simple as finding a large basket or two to hold all of your child’s current favorite books.

Hanging Wire Baskets: Utilize wall space with a three-tier hanging basket. Hang it at a low height where kids can reach it easily. These are great because kids can remove and replace the books all on their own. Even if the books are haphazardly returned, the baskets corral the books and ensure they always look organized.

Cute (and different) Furniture: The book cabinet can also have a playful air, being used not only to organize the room but also as part of the decoration. This way, this piece can be a little house, a tree, or even an elephant, have you thought?
