You might read the title of this blog and think it’s about storing books in an easy-to-reach spot for your child (which, yes, is a great idea). But nope, I mean it more literally; a large enough box is just right for reading books in the box.
Veronika loves reading her “magazines” (Hello from Highlights) and I wanted to create a cozy spot where she could do so. To wit, I had a big box from a diaper delivery that was perfect for this activity.
First, we needed to decorate it, and Veronika leaps at any chance to pull out her crayons!
I thought she might like a cozy blanket and pillow nestled inside, along with a few books.
It turns out she wanted nothing to do with the blanket. But soon was ensconced and rapt with her “reading”.
Sometimes she wanted to turn the box on its side, more like a cave to crawl into and read.
Sometimes it was more like her little reading boat.
Add a snack if you want, or simply let reading be the draw. Whatever the case, she loved her little reading box!
