Every night we hop on the couch to read books together. We have an extra wide hallway that we turned into our reading spot just outside the kids rooms. I made the Cat in the Hat curtains for 'Sally's' nursery when she was born and as we've moved we've used the curtains in our playroom or reading area. I made the curtain rod tabs to look like the cat's hat then I added red rick-rack to the bottom as trim. The bookshelf and closet are filled with classic children's books. After reading together as a family, 'Sally & Conrad' go to their rooms that are filled with more specific girl & boy age-appropriate books to choose from to read in bed. Designating a reading spot is a great thing to have in your home. The kids still read other places in the house but they know the routine is to read every night together in this special spot.
