How To Make A Book Worm : 3 Ways To Create The Perfect Reading Nook

Reading is good for kids. In fact, studies have shown that reading can increase IQs, expand vocabularies, and help kids develop better cognitive skills. If you’re struggling to get your kids to read, you might need to create a comfortable book nook for them. The right environment can help ignite your child’s love for reading. Here are some easy ways to create a book nook that will make your kids want to read and will help them retain the information they’ve learned.

Create the Space

It doesn’t take much space to create the perfect reading nook for your kids. All you need is a quiet corner that isn’t being used for anything. Once you have the area selected, you’ll be ready to get started decorating.

Supplies You’ll Need

  • Comfy chair

  • Throw rug

  • Book shelf

  • Small table

  • Table lamp


  1. Place the chair in a corner and set the throw rug in front of it.

  2. Set a book shelf on one side of the chair and fill it with books.

  3. Set a small table on the other side of the chair.

  4. Place a lamp on the table so your child won’t harm their eyes by reading in the dark.

Don’t Forget the Reading Tools

If you have older kids, you want them to be able to mark their books, especially if they want to remember key passages. Make sure you provide your kids with pens, highlighters and bookmarks, so they can keep track of what they’re reading. These supplies can be kept in an tin can on the side table.

Children retain more of what they’re reading when they report on what they’re read. Help your kids develop their reading skills by sharing the stories with them.
