“Offered to the young reader, the bookcase gives an inviting view of the books, and provides easy and handy managing.” says A+A Cooren. “Made of clear wood which is partly coated with blackboard paint, expanded with a roll of white paper with a room for chalk and pencils, this small piece of multi-functional furnishings delivers an ideal space for reading and writing. A transportable lamp illuminates the distinct reading through postures of the consumer. A net offers a storage room for a cushion or tiny personalized things this kind of as a blanket.”

“The task is primarily based on a simple observation: a lot of young children have no books, no library, no location to sit. If the book does not have its own place, its time, it was far significantly less very likely to exist in the child’s everyday lifestyle. Possessing books at residence, books that we have chosen, which belong to us, is critical to produce the click of studying and particularly to install in a standard practice.” says Sylvie Vassallo, Director of Salon du Livre et de la Presse Jeunesse (The Youth Book and Press Fair) in Seine-Saint-Denis.
