Sling Bookcases Are More Than Just A Storage Solution

Sling Bookcases – or Book Slings – are a great way of storing your young child’s books. Many picture books are large and paper-backed making it difficult to fit them in regular bookcases. I found the shelves of our nursery bookcases were too small for them to stand upright so they always had to be laid flat.

Sling Bookcases help kids to start reading

We know that selecting and sharing books is a great way to get young children to start reading. But it’s hard for them to see books in a conventional bookcase because only the thin spine is showing. And you know what’s it’s like when they eventually work one free from the bottom of a pile. Yes, they all come out at the same time.

Sling Bookcases work because kids can see the front of the book. It’s easy for them to pick one, take it out and – hopefully – replace it. Less fuss and mess. Furthermore, there’s probably more chance they’ll choose a book to play with if they can see it.
