(Parenting) Accessible Book Stash


Seeing your child curl up with a book is such a sweet sight. Many of us just wish that our children would do it more frequently!

To encourage reading in your home, create an easily accessible book stash in one of your main living areas. This could be a basket in the corner or a bottom shelf on an easy-to-access bookshelf. For added appeal, stick a couple of pillows, a blanket, or a beanbag near the books. Sometimes simply creating an environment to allow for the development of good habits is all the encouragement that our kids need.

*Tip – Join your kids in front of the book collection every once in awhile. By participating with them, even just occasionally, you reinforce, encourage, and create positive memories and associations with the activity, thus encouraging your child to repeat it.
