Think for a second about the rooms in the house that your husband and children spend the most time. If you aren’t at that point yet, think about your dad or your brother… Was the bathroom on that list?
According to Jim Trelease, author of The Reading Handbook, people spend A LOT of time in the bathroom. I dont have the exact quote because the book is at school for the summer, but I know it is a significant amount.
So why am I mentioning this? Because Jim suggests that you put book baskets in the bathrooms. After reading this and thinking about it a few years ago, I realized how much sense this makes. Take a look at our bathroom books…
For other interesting reading information and tips, I encourage all parents and teachers to read the book or at least check out his website.
This has me thinking about the time kids spend in the bathroom at school. Maybe we should start using the space on the stall doors for reading material?!?!
