Now I have to admit to being a huge fan of the humble bookcase. One of the first pieces of furniture I owned, even before a sofa, was a bookcase for my huge collection of books. Yes I collect rare and antique books — sad but true!
My love of books has been with me since childhood so naturally I am keen to pass this onto my own children. Each of them have a set of bookshelves in their rooms that are overflowing with books and that’s just the way I like it! But just looking at the market today it is clear that in kid’s furniture, children’s bookcases are big sellers so I’m relieved that I’m not the only one trying to pass down a love of books to my kids.
Natural Wood Bookcases For Children
Old wood and old books have to be amongst my favourite smells; it conjures up images of old, magical bookshops where there are untold stories crying out to be read. All of the bookshelves in my house are made of natural wood and I especially love the children’s bookcases by Feather and Black.
This Salisbury bookcase for kids is great for storing not just books but CDs, tapes and games too and because it sits quite low on the ground it also provides essential shelf space!
Also ideal for small children is this small wooden bookcase. Everything is reachable, there is plenty of space on the wide, tall shelves and the top shelf is also accessible for pictures, toys etc.
Kids Inspired Bookcases
Now some might say that my taste in the traditional bookshelves is boring. Well, that’s debatable but for those who like to jazz it up a little, here are some unique examples that are far from boring!
Is it a bookcase or is it a doll’s house? Well it can be both! Your children can have fun with this brilliant children’s bookcase house that has ample storage space for books, dolls, toys and also lets your children have fun and use their imaginations!
And if your children have difficulty in finding just the right book for bedtime, this children’s display bookcase is just what is needed! Books are displayed facing outwards, incorporating the books designs into the overall look of the bookcase! You can choose from blue, white or a natural wood finish.
Tall Bookcases for Kids
The older child and teenagers will probably appreciate something altogether more sedate and mature looking, so trust John Lewis to provide just the thing. They have a selection of tall, elegant bookcases like this large wooden children’s bookcase that would grace most children’s rooms and can hold a huge amount of books/CDs/games.
Children who are brought up with a love of books generally do better at school and are more imaginative and creative, so encourage your children with these beautiful children’s bookcases that they will delight in filling up with lots of colourful, exciting books!
