My daughter had one of those bunk bed setups where there's a top bunk and a removable full-size bed underneath. We recently moved the full-size bed to another room. I noticed that the space underneath the top bunk seemed big enough to hold the two bookshelves that were on the other side of the room. My daughter immediately seized on this idea. I don't remember which of us started referring to the area as a book nook, but she was immediately eager for said nook to be arranged.
She even got ready for school early so that we had extra time in the mornings to move the bookshelves. This ended up involving a weeding/sorting process, discussed in a previous post. The initial stacks are shown to the left. The whole thing took a couple of days, but in the end the shelves were much better organized. I only hit my head on the upper bunk once, so that was a win, too.
Once the bookshelves were moved, a trip to Target followed, during which two beanbag chairs were procured.
And voila! A new book nook! I hope it gets many hours of enjoyment.
One of the ways to encourage kids to read is to give them comfortable spaces in which to do so. I feel fortunate that we were able to put together this one. Happy reading!
