HearthSong Personalized Book Rack Review and Giveaway

Winner Comment #63 - Kim said...twitter follow u -kgail11

Everyone in my family loves to read, which means that we have shelves full of books. Most of our shelves stay pretty organized, but no matter how hard I try it seems like my girls books are always littered across the floor. I try to make my girls pick them up, but they have a hard time placing books sideways in a traditional bookcase.

When we rearranged our girls room recently I wanted to get a new bookcase to get the books and the mess out of my living room. I could have easily just moved a small bookcase upstairs, but I wanted to find one that my girls could use easier.

I saw this Personalized bookcase at HearthSong and fell in love.


I love that the bookcase comes in pastels and primary colors and is customizable with a child's name.  But my absolute favorite thing is that the books are placed in front to back and not side by side.  The books aren't always placed neatly in the bookcase, but they are in the bookcase.

The bookcase is also fairly small and fit perfectly in my daughters room.  With the bookcase I was able to take a packed room and create a reading nook for my girls.


We used chairs that we already owned, but sometime I would love to trade them out for these beanbags which can also be found at HearthSong


To Buy - The bookcase retails for $70 and would make a great addition to any child's room!  HearthSong also has a great variety of Easter and outdoor Children's Products!  Also right now HearthSong has a fun Connectagons Contest going on.  All you have to do is fill out a form and upload a picture of your Connectagons creation and you could win $300!

To Win - HearthSong is giving away a personalized bookcase to one of you!
