For this post, I have put together a collection of the best children’s bookcases currently available. See my guide to 100s of kids bedroom ideas.

MY TOP PICK:
My favourite kids bookcase is the Homfa Children Wall Bookcase because it can be fixed to the wall in your child’s bedroom, which is great for space saving, plus it has 4 tiers, which will store up to 25 books.


What better way to create a reading corner in your child’s bedroom than by adding a bookcase. Children will love being able to pick and display their books in their very own bookcase…and there are plenty to choose from!

If you are looking for somewhere that the kids can sit and read or get creative, check out our article on the best kids table and chairs.

For more storage recommendations see my guide to toy storage units – or the best bean bags for kids that can double up as comfy chairs and also hold soft toys.

What To Consider When Buying A Children’s Bookcase

Size

Choose a bookcase which will suit the size of your child’s bedroom. You don’t want anything which will overpower the rest of the room. You will want it to look inviting for your child. Smaller children like to be able to reach in and have a look themselves, so think about lower bookcases too.

Durability

You’re going to want something which is sturdy and durable for little hands. Wood or high quality combinations of wood and fabric/plastic are ideal.

Age of Child

Some bookcases are made for toddlers and may seem too babyish to older kids. If your child has built up a bigger collection of books you may want something which can hold plenty of books and look more like an adult bookcase.

I hope this list of the best children’s bookcases was helpful.
