Thanks to all the wonderful blogs out there and Pinspiration, we decided to create a book nook for the Sugar Snaps. They love to look at books already and now have an inviting space to nestle in and enjoy books. We purchased the ‘awning’ from Ikea and some sheer curtain panels. I sewed three of the panels folded over two to three times onto the awning. We re-purposed a changing pad and made it a cushion to sit on. We put some stadium cushions in the back and covered the cushions in down comforters we were not using. Grandma and Grandpa gave them a white book shelf which we filled with fun miniature books. We purchased the colorful canvas bookshelf and filled it with larger books. They were so excited about their new book nook. They love to pick out books from the shelves, snuggle into the cushions and enjoy. The great thing about it is it does not require a lot of space, just one corner (or small section) of any room.

The selection of bigger books sits across from the smaller books.
Xayden and Grayson enjoy the miniature books.
Have you created a book nook for your children or students? I’d love to see it. Feel free to add links. It is great for them to have a special place just to read. It fosters the love of books and adds an element of ‘awe’ that books are so revered that they have their own nook! What does your family (or your school) do to celebrate books?
