I have two children; one is 5 another is 3 years old. I want to buy some children’s picture books, but my husband think that is not a good idea to buy a lot of book put in our Apartment. So what can I do?
I agree, Picture books are great for kids, and nothing beats the experience of touching a real book. Will you have some wall space that you might want to frame the books? The covers have some of the best artwork. They could be surrounded by the love of reading. Shadow boxes could work well, and when you want to you can pull out the book you want to read together.
Your local library should have lots of books for children. Often libraries have multimedia titles for both children and adults including streaming video, audio, and ebooks. Libraries may have programs for children such as story times and craft activities. The library is also a good place for adults to find inexpensive activities, education, and entertainment material.
I consider books are important for children’s development, so buying books should not be considered a bad thing. Even if the space is limited and you don’t want to fill it with unnecessary items, books for kids are a good choice, as they don’t need too much room, but they can turn out to be quite handy for your children. So I would recommend you to talk to your husband and try to convince him that buying a few books for your children would not do any harm to your apartment.
Children’s books are rather small. Get one big volume of fairy tales. That one you won’t want the children to touch until they are old enough to know how to treat books. Then buy several cheap ones that are small and can fit in the toy box. These will need to be cheap because these are the one you’ll let the child use and touch, while trying to instill in them the need to take care of books. But in these lessons, and while still allowing them to explore, these books are “disposable” once they become useless as story time books. Therefore they only take up room temporarily.
