There is nothing like cuddling next to your little ones while reading a good story together. Over the past two years, we have curated quite the library of children’s books for my daughter. Of course there are some books we reach for more than others. My two absolute favourite children’s books to read to my daughter are I Heart you and Apple Cake. Both have gorgeous illustrations, a beautiful message and are short enough to keep a two year old’s attention.
Today I thought I would share some of my favourite children’s book with a focus on kid’s books that look gorgeous displayed on a bookshelf. Here are a few other things I look for when shopping for children’s books: beautiful illustrations, good length, great story and a gorgeous cover.
How to style a bookcase for a little girl’s room
To create a beautiful bookcase display aim to have both books and trinkets on each shelf for display. Picture frames, small stuffed animals and wooden blocks all are great options. I love using the Ikea picture ledge as book shelves in kids rooms because they are very affordable and have a beautiful simple design. When curating your child’s bookshelf aim for a few books in different sizes with covers in similar colour palettes.

Children’s books with pink covers
We decided to use pink as an accent colour in my daughter’s nursery and specifically wanted to purchase a few children’s books that had pink cover art to decorate her room . While there are plenty of books for little girls with beautiful covers in shades of blush and rose, shopping specifically for books by the cover colour wasn’t easy. I ended up spending hours searching to find the perfect books to display in her room. To save you the trouble, I have curated a selection of the prettiest children’s books with pink covers. Here are a few of my favourites.
