One way to foster a love of reading in your child is to make reading convenient. Provide special reading nooks and spaces for your child to read - make it comfortable, make it playful, make it creative - design areas that invite your child to relax with a book in hand.
You don't need a huge space - even just a little corner or two will do. Imagine the possibilities - a warm throw rug, a mini table and chairs, a lamp, a bookshelf, a stack of books, and perhaps an upholstered child-sized chair of her own.
P'kolino's Little Reader is *PERFECT* for this purpose. Designed for the toddler set, the Little Reader is "optimized for little readers. Comfy foam, supple fabric, arm rests and book pockets creates the prefect environment for relaxing with a good book or just a little down time." Plus, it is "feathery light so with the aid of the handle your little one can tote this chair to their favorite quiet spot."
P'kolino (pronounced pee-ko-lee-no) offers colorful, stylish, well-made play furniture for kids. Two dads created the company in 2004 and they've been adding to their collection ever since. P'kolino's items are one-of-a-kind and have that chic European feel.
J.B. Schneider, one of the founders of P'kolino, believes that "it is important to have young children 'read' on their own even before they can read. Books where the pictures tell the story are a great start. They let the child create the story in their mind (as if they we reading)." Creating a space for them to do that is key...and, if you want to add a piece or two of play furniture to your area, P'kolino might be just what you're looking for.
