In the Reading Box

It’s a constant quest to get the books organized and reorganized around here.  They’re constantly changing.  Here, I made a reading box with some of the current titles the kids can pick up and read independently.  Facing front are BalletBoy’s books and facing sideways (mostly) are Mushroom’s.

In Mushroom’s reading pile: BOB books, I See Sam Books, a couple of Real Kids Phonics readers, Ten Apples Up On Top, See Pip Point, and Polo and the Runaway Book.

In BalletBoy’s reading pile at the moment: a couple Nate the Greats, a couple Tashis, Frog and Toad are Friends, Poppleton Everyday, a Magic Treehouse, Commander Toad and the Voyage Home, Way Out West with Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe, and Angelina on Stage, which is sticking up in back along with the Polo book.

On the one hand, you want the books to stay where they should so they’re not scattered all over the house.  On the other hand, you don’t.

One thought on “In the Reading Box

  1. I’m making notes about the contents of your basket!

    My poor husband is driven crazy by my book organization system, though, when he tries to clean up the books scattered across the living room and playroom. “No, honey, it’s very simple. Everything related to the Five in a Row book of the week goes in the FIAR box. Books she can read herself go in the reading time basket, unless they’re related to the FIAR book of the week, in which case they go in the FIAR box. Toddler books go in the repurposed CD rack in the living room, but make sure you don’t just limit that to board books – it’s also the regular books the toddler likes. Alex’s non-FIAR non-reading time books go in the bookshelf in the playroom… why are you looking at me like that?”
