Encouraging kids to read by creating a reading corner

Anyone that knows me or my son's will know we all love reading. We are book-aholics.

I have created a few different reading spaces in our home over the years but this one has to be the most successful!

We have a space under the stairs which I managed to fit a couple of old bookcases and an old recliner chair into.

Took our daylight lamp to it and ta-da! A fantastic reading corner.

I originally designed this space for me to escape to as the boys already had a reading space in their room but it has quickly been taken over by two little bookworms! 

Currently Reuben (age 9) is really into books by David Solomon's. We went to our local bookshop where he selected his most recent book. Read more about it in my upcoming post.
