Encouraging and supporting reading in the home is very important to me - from a teacher perspective but also as a mother. Last week, I shared some Play Space Inspiration and while I was admiring all the play spaces - I spotted a few gorgeous reading nooks. I am a huge fan of 'nooks', in fact I wouldn't be surprised if every room in our new home will have one.
What I love about reading nooks is that they are simple, cozy and inviting for children (and adults). It can be set up in a corner or area in the home, where it is preferably well lit or near a window for natural light. Add some cushions, blankets & a few favourite toys and it becomes a child's favourite place to chill out and read a book. Books are easily accessible for young children (at eye level) - stored in baskets and bins or on the wall in little shelves (perfect little DIY project). Reading nooks are not just for books either, you can mix it up by using a variety of reading materials e.g. magazines, newspapers, word cards, a range of books (different genre etc), paper and pencils/pens. You can also add in a few toys to keep fiddly fingers pre-occupied. I am looking forward to creating this fun, yet educational space in our home.
Here are some amazing Reading Nooks I am loving RIGHT NOW!
As you walk into the room, you are welcomed by a corner library. Absolutely love how they have utilised the wall space. I would be totally tempted to grab a book from the shelf. find a cozy spot to sit and read. What do you think?

Inspired by Reggio and Montessori - I am loving the baskets, and mixed textures in this lovely reading corner/nook. It looks very inviting.

I like the simplicity of this reading nook - displaying of the books using shelves, a bean bag and some funky curtains. I would love to read a book in this space.
Do you have a Reading Nook in your home? Please share your ideas.
