1. Simple - Keep the space simple, without a lot of visual distractions or toys. Allow books to be the main focus!
2. Shhhhh - The reading space should be located in a relatively quiet part of the house
3. Well-lighted -- Natural light, a lamp or even a sparkly string of lights will ensure that your child can see without straining.
4. Organised -- Keep books on shelves or in baskets.
5. Retain interest by periodically rotating the selection of books in the reading space!
