Be inspired by the cutest, tiniest corners.
As a mama, we want to instill a love for books for our kids. Reading books has great benefits—expanding their range of vocabulary and helping them to become smarter. But maintaining that love, in the age of technology, where screens instantly catch kiddo's attention, can be a challenge.
The easiest place to start a love of reading is right in the comfort of your own home. That's why having a reading nook is essential. Their playtime (and mama quiet time) can both take flight in a tiny corner of the house for some comfy, cozy, reading time.
You know that tiny spot under your stairs that only fits pillows, or that area in the corner of your mudroom that piles up with toys? Transform those areas into functioning reader corners.
And even if you aren't a reading family, don't stress it. Reading nooks are still a great place to just chill and unwind.
