Reading Nook for Toddlers and Preschoolers

Posted on: July 20, 2011

Our living room is set up in such a way that there is a great little space between our long sofa and love seat. Many a day, the girls have played back there. Jack, on occasion, has even taken to hiding from the girls resting there. But in the last couple of weeks, it’s seen little use. Which I find a little sad, because if I could comfortable fit, I’d be in that little nook all day.

This weekend I came across a cute {and easy} idea from Pinterest ::

On Monday, with the girls help, we created our own little reading nook ::

And least you think that the girls are quiet, non-messy readers, this was how their nook looked within the first 2 minutes ::

Have you ever made a reading nook? Or do you/your kids have a reading nook?

Looks really cozy! My husband and I refer to our love seat as the reading nook since it’s in a corner and the books we’re currently reading always end up on the end table next to it.


I have little landing upstairs and need to transform it into a reading nook. Adorable!

great idea! they look like they are having fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Too cool! Our girls love books and I am sure would love a little place like this!

That’s an adorable little place for your girls to read :). I love how the girls probably feel so special for having a place all their own!

what a great idea!!!

What a great idea- love it!

I share some of your favorite quotes, by the way, as well as those you added on FB. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lastly, TOTALLY agree with your touch thing. I feel for Josh as he is such a touchy person.

I’ve never made or had a reading nook. We have space for it in our bedroom if we could only keep the chair clear of clothes. We also need a floor lap in there but this has me inspired. LOVE the kiddie nook super fun and tucked away.

What a great idea. My girls would love that! I’ll need to look around my house to see if we have a cozy place to create a reading nook for them. They love to read and when they do, it’s every book on the shelf…and of course they never put the books back. They leave that task for mommy. ๐Ÿ™‚

What a great idea! They look so sweet all tucked in there reading their books!!

What a great idea! There are a few spots in our house where this might work in the future… I’ll have to keep this in mind! I used to curl up in our linen closet at home and have a “secret” reading spot ๐Ÿ™‚
