Big Book Little Book is a green, affordable children’s bookcase, designed to encourage an early love of reading. I was recently sent one to test run and review AND I’ve also got one to give away!
Designed to hold both smaller board books and larger picture books, crucially facing forward enabling kids to make their own decisions about what they read by looking at the frontcovers, the Big Book Little Book bookcase appealed to me because:
I was curious to see how strong it could be, but found it could happily hold over 12kg of books and still be robust enough to withstand moving it around, lifting it up and down and even dragging it across the floor.
If you’ve a playroom or a bedroom with some floorspace for playing on I think the Big Book Little Book bookcase is a winner. You can fill it with a selection of books and leave them out to entice your child into picking one up. For me personally I thought they’d be really useful for the school book swap I run, but I also thought they were spot on for playgroups who wanted to have a book corner.
When I gave our bookcase to M she came up with a novel way to use the Big Book Little Book bookcase. She wanted to create a bedside shelving unit rather than use it as it was designed to be used.
I have to stress this is not how the bookcase is designed to be used, but by supporting it underneath on the rim of M’s bed, and attaching it to the wall using these stickers, it’s working brilliantly for us as a vertical rather than horizontal bookcase. M loves having a selection of books right by her pillow and she herself has said “Now it will be easier for me to read whatever I want“.
