What do you do with all your kids books?

My 19 month old has SO many books, I have them in a sterilite three drawer unit but now I got a box of more books donated and i'm wondering where they should go?! Bookshelf? I'm scared of the mess if they are that easily accessible though

  • We have always done bookshelves (screwed into the studs) and taught the value of treating books correctly. We have dozens and dozens of children's books.

  • buy a cheap bookshelf from walmart and get some bins from the dollar store, that way they are accessible to him and out of your way

  • Get book shelves. That's what I have, and my 12 mo old and 4 yo have access to all of the books they want. I have books upstairs and downstairs. I won't donate a single book until my kids are no longer kids. You can never have too many. I even rent books from the library once a week.
