Every child deserves to live their best bookish life, and here are some ways you can help them do so, from bookmarks to reading logs to bookish charities. And let’s be honest, as a parent, I get as much joy out of finding bookish things for my child as she does using them.
THE BEST LITERARY LIFE FOR CHILDREN
A soft, fabric bookend they can’t crack their heads open on. Yes, I have a toddler.
Hanging, front-facing shelves are perfect for picture book readers.
Or a front-facing bookshelf (make sure to brace it to the wall).
And one more because I’m definitely coveting this double-sided children’s book cart, though my daughter would literally wheel it all around the house so maybe not.
Make it easier for your child to read in bed no matter the time with a good reading light.
Or a clip-on book light that doubles as a bookmark.
Help track reading with this fun, color-in reading tracker.
Or this superhero reading log.
Or a reading app, like Epic!, the leading digital library for kids 12 and under. Also, check out these reading apps for kids.
These bookish cat stickers are perfect for notebooks and tablets!
Help them further proclaim their bookishness with bookish pins.
Of course they need a collection of bookmarks.
And a container for the bookmarks.
Put their name on the wall in the most bookishly wild way possible with these customized letters.
Older kids will love this Chronicles of Narnia watercolor map print.
