10 of the best kids&#; bookcases and storage for books

Keeping your child’s favourite books neat and orderly can often be tricky, which is where children’s bookcases come in. Store all of their books on specially sized and designed bookcases which feature their favourite characters, shelves at the right height for them or even those which are carts on wheels so they can tow their books with them from room to room.

Below, we have listed a range of children’s book storage options including small bookcases for kids and those decorated in fun and creative designs to kindle young imaginations.

For inspiration on the titles to stock on your new bookshelf, we’ve rounded up the best baby and toddler books and the best interactive books for toddlers and kids. Plus, if you are looking for more ways to keep children’s rooms in order, we’ve also found some of the best toy storage solutions.

What to look for in bookcases for kids

Size – The size of bookcase you need will depend not only on the space you have available, but also on the age of your child. If you want something a younger child or toddler can reach the books from themselves, you’ll want something with smaller height options and easily accessible shelves.

Assembly – There are also wall mounted choices which parents can access and will save on floor space. Independent shelves are also a good way to store books, as multiple units can be mounted together as needed for the optimum amount of storage space.

Temporary solutions – Lighter weight book carts are also a fun way for children to store their favourite books, as they can wheel them along with them from their room to their favourite reading corner in the house. And then don’t require tricky assembly.

Style – You can find everything from traditional, country style bookcases to whimsical unicorn-shaped shelving units, plus options themed to some of kids’ favourite characters, too.

The Best Kids Bookshelves and Book Storage for Kids Who Love to Read

As parents well know, kids books seem to multiply when you’re not looking: baby shower books, birthday present books, picture books from the local bookstore — the list goes on. This is mostly great: There’s not really any such thing as too much reading for a kid, considering how much it advances language acquisition and comprehension skills. But books need space, and they belong in a kids’ bookcase. Which is why having the perfect kids’ bookshelf is so important — to stow the books away and to look good doing it. Book storage that is good-looking and  easily accessible to kids makes the reading area of your kid’s room pleasant and can create positive associations with books and reading. The best kids bookshelves we found not only provide ample space for your kid’s ever-growing collection of books, but are also easy for kids to use and fun to look at.

Bookshelf by Floyd Home

When you buy furniture for kids, you want them to be able to safely use it, but it to also grow with them so you don't have to replace it every two years because it just looks too babyish. Enter Floyd. This bookcase in particular is totally modular and incredibly durable. It features powder coated steel shelves and ash supports. You can keep adding to it, both in height and width, as your kid gets older. And it looks just as at home in the living room as the play room, which is always the goal.

Kids' Bookcase by Bonton by Bohème

Made out of natural rattan, this bohemian-inspired bookshelf is the chicest way to amp up your kid's play space.
