Reading is not only a wonderful educational activity for children, it can also be fun and relaxing - with the right tools! In celebration of World Book Day 2020, we're sharing our favourite reading corner essentials to ensure every little bookworm has the perfect space to read.
A Cosy Cushion
When it comes to settling down to read, first things first - you'll need somewhere comfy to sit and sink into the story. We have a gorgeous collection of beanbags and children's chair here at JoJo, or simple pillow on the floor could do the trick too.
A Little Library
Now for the main event! Choosing books for your little one can be one of the most nostalgic moments you'll have as a parent. There are so many classic stories that you would have enjoyed as a child and are still available to purchase today. From Peter Rabbit to Elmer the Elephant and more modern tales, browse our collection and help your little one create their very first little library.
If you're looking for something a little less overbearing than a standing bookcase to store your little one's books, a wall shelf or two will do the trick. You can place them low enough for your child to still access them, and still keep the floor clear for extra storage or space below.
If you do have enough space for a standing bookcase, you can't go wrong with our White Bookcase or Tall Thin Bookcase. They're perfect for storing books of all different sizes, displaying them within easy reach to encourage little ones to read more. To make them even more exciting, decorate them with your own stickers, add some fairy lights or soft toys to the shelves.
A Personal Touch
Create the perfect #Shelfie worthy space by adding some of your little one's favourite things to the shelf for decoration. If they have an animal themed bedroom, why not add a few animal wall stickers, soft toys and books with animals as the main character?
