Reading Spaces

Happy Hump Day!  The week is just flying by and that is fine by me.  This weekend we are getting another front and that means even cooler temps. here in Central Texas.  Bring it on!

This week we have enjoyed nice weather and the other day we took advantage of it.  We took a blanket outside with a basket of books and made an outdoor reading space.


 
 

We all know reading with our children is so important when it comes to their development, but also having inviting reading spaces make the experience just as important.

Our daughter has a reading space in her room with a little rug and the basket of books you see above.  I thought moving it outside for the day would open up new ideas and thoughts from her.  The fresh air and looking up into the clouds, she enjoyed the books as well as the scenery around her.

No matter where you set up a reading space be it indoors or out, make sure it is inviting to your child.  There are so many amazing ways to organize books that you should not have any trouble.  Have your child be a part of picking out the books to go in the space and if need be, rotate the books out periodically.  Comfy pillows and blankets are a nice touch to feel cozy when reading a favorite book.  Also, having stuffed animals or special dolls for your child would be a great way to get them reading out loud.

Here are a few more ideas for reading spaces.  I hope this inspires you to create a special reading space for your child.
