100 Children's book themes

Books are very much loved in our house. Our kiddos love to flip through books and read books of all sorts. Using book themes for our children’s books helps to keep our kiddos interested.

Book Rotation

To keep things interesting and keep our kiddos reaching for books, I like to rotate our books.

Rotating the books is a quick and easy way to make sure new and interesting books are available for our kiddos.

Throughout our house, we have multiple books shelves and baskets, each of which contains 5-10 books.

Every 1-2 weeks books are removed and new books are added to the shelves and baskets.

The books displayed are a combination of library books and books from our own home collection.

Children’s Book Themes

To keep things interesting for our children and to make it easier to select books, I like to follow a theme for the week.

Once a theme is picked, I will pull books from our home collection and/or the library. These books are displayed in our playroom for the kids to look at and read.

To add to the fun, activities that center around the theme can be created as well.
