Where Kids Read in the Home

Whether he loves reading in his bedroom or in the kitchen, having book-friendly spaces makes all the difference in your child's literacy. Here are books perfect for each reading room in your home.

Did you know: You can build a children’s book library in every room in your house? 

In a sneak peek from Scholastic's soon-to-be-released Kids & Family Reading Report: 6th Edition, data revealed that children ages 6-17 who consider themselves frequent readers (kids who read for fun 5-7 days out of the week) are much more likely to have more books in their home than those who are infrequent readers. In fact, more than half of these frequent readers report having over 100 books in their home.

Parents and kids from across the nation revealed the rooms in their homes where children’s books are most commonly found — from the family/living room to the kitchen. And find out the top 5 books and series parents recommended every kid should read. As a holiday bonus, Scholastic Reading Club editors curated the top book picks for every age group from 0-17. Give the gift of reading — your children will thank you!
