Creating Comfy Reading Spots Around the House

Creating reading spots around the house is a great way to make reading a fun and easy part of your daily routine from the start. Place books in bins, boxes, bookshelves, or wall shelves in various locations around the house to create frequent opportunities for reading. Fill them up over time, as you collect more books for your little one and switch out books that are age-appropriate as they grow.Make reading spots comfy by adding pillows, blankets, chairs, a play tent or your own special touches. The more your baby has the opportunity to interact with books, the more likely it is that she will want to read with you every day.

As your child accrues more books, it is fun to rotate books by seasons, holidays, occasions, or themes. You might mix in a few books that are relevant to the season and then replace them with different books when the season changes.
