My Reading Place


Sakhi, 8, shows off the crafts she’s made as part of a community-reading program.

Sakhi, who lives in a small village near Aparajita, India, attends an after-school reading club and has a reading corner where she keeps her books.

“I like reading the most” says Sakhi “but I also like the make and take activity where we are asked to draw or write something from what we learned at the reading club.  We take [them] home and store them in our reading corners.”

 “Creating a reading corner shows your child that you value reading, and encourages them to practice their literacy skills,” says Craig. “It also reminds us, as parents, to create room in our day to read with our children.”

Here’s how to make a reading corner:

  1. Pick a cozy spot where your child can display favorite books and crafts. It should be well-lit and have a comfortable place to sit. A pillow will do or you could use a small table and chair.
  2. Together with your child, decorate the reading corner. You can add a shelf to display books; hang yarn or string between two corners and use clothes pins to display arts and crafts; and make your own flash cards or literacy games with craft materials.
  3. Sit together in the reading corner and enjoy a good book.
