Encouraging kids to read from a very small age is really important and a very healthy activity. Reading boosts the imagination of a child and helps him or her to learn new things and once this habit is made it can stay with them lifelong. And to make kids read it is a good idea to provide them a dedicated book nook so that they know they have a space to sit and enjoy their books whenever they want. So, here are different ideas to create reading corners in a kids room:
1. Fix One or Two Shelves and Put a Few Pillows

Perhaps the easiest way to add a reading nook to a kids room is with picture ledge shelves and a few comfy pillows. You can coordinated the color of the shelves and the pillows with the furniture and decor theme of the bedroom to keep the nook in harmony with the bedroom’s theme and colors.
