Comfy corners for readings

Many of us who have grown up to be readers (and writers) have special childhood reading memories. Often then are about favourite books, but they're also about people and places. Reading spaces can be carefully planned and created by adults or children, or they can be quite spontaneous. Here are some reading spaces for children which will hopefully inspire reading memories for children to take through their lives.

Mind you, any place can be a good place to read!

Please add your own if you'd like to.


  1. Lovely post. I can remember many books but not where I read them except for the ones I read to children in preschools and playgroups and of course my grandchildren in my home!

  2. Thanks Lesley. Of course the books are always the most important part of the mix, but there's nothing nicer than snuggling down in a favourite place with a good book. And I'm sure there are many Early Childhood teachers who can report that revamping a classroom 'reading corner' with comfy seating and a cosy feel has led to increased interest in spending time with books.
