We often hear or read the benefits of reading especially to children. It can improve and develop the child’s vocabulary, imagination, logic and other traits that can lead to academic excellence.
Every mother would also want kids to be bright and smart so whenever I go to a bookstore, I always make sure to buy a good book for my girls. Suddenly, I realized that I bought a lot of books that I did not know where to place them anymore. That’s when I decided that I need to buy a bookshelf for my kid’s bedroom. Here are some aspects that I considered before I chose and bought the perfect bookshelf for my kids.
Safety first! You MUST make sure that it’s steady enough to not fall over on your child. You also have to take note of the sharp edges or you may buy edge and corner guards to make sure it won’t hurt your little one. For smaller children, a vertical bookshelf would be a better choice so they can reach and browse ever shelf without climbing on it.
Check the space it can offer. If you have a lot of books or if your child is an avid reader, then you should choose a large bookshelf that can hold the books that you want to put in it. Otherwise, a two to three feet bookshelf will do. You can also consider bookshelves that have several cubbies so you can put in other stuff like toys and art materials.
Choose the design and color that you AND your child like. Now, this is the fun part. Work as a team and pick a beautiful bookshelf. Remember that an item appealing to the eyes of a child can encourage its use. So make sure you consider your child’s viewpoint about it. It’s his or her bookshelf after all.
These are just tips and guidelines. There might be other factors to consider. Just use your instincts. After all, parents want and know what is best for their children.
