It’s not like the “corner.” A reading nook that will encourage your kids to read at home should not be a place that they associate with something that happens when they get into mischief. It has to be a fun place where they can have their own adventure whether from the stories that they read or from stories that they create themselves. An age-appropriate reading nook will make it easier for your children to develop the love for reading and learning.
For toddlers and pre-school aged kids, your reading nook should have padded floors and walls. You can have a book rack with all his favorite books. Make sure that your reading nook furniture pieces do not have sharp corners. Better yet, you can have throw pillows on the floor where you and your little one can cuddle up for reading time. Some reading nooks have puppet stages or doll houses where the characters of the storybook adventures can come alive.
