I love to see unique, creative and warm spaces for kids to read. I get great pleasure watching kids get comfortable in a reading nook and settling in with a good book.
I asked our Growing Book by Book readers to share their reading nook spaces. I’ve gathered them all together and we are now ready to share them with you.
Our hope is that you will be inspired to set-up at least one reading nook in your home or classroom.

Stephanie shared a few of her many reading nooks within her house. In the two pictures below she utilizes her hallway to create reading spaces!
She says, “There is a large space at the end of a hallway in our home that we have made into a reading nook. We use IKEA photo ledges to display books and the shelf from Target is full of books and puzzles. I rotate most of these books every few weeks.”
Mandie created an inviting reading space too. The low shelving is perfect for young children to access books and the top of the shelf makes great display space for featuring books.
Reading nooks don’t require big spaces. Laura shows us how the end of the bed can be a perfect spot for a giant hamster bean bag to relax and enjoy a good book. She got her furry creature at TJMaxx.
Laura also let her girls turn a bedroom closet into a fun reading nook fort. She let the girls do all the decorating. A great idea for getting the kids involved in creating their just right reading spaces.
I hope you are inspired to create your own reading nook.
Show me your reading nook spaces! I just may feature you in an upcoming post. Send your pictures to Jodie (at) growingbookbybook.com .
