We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. From developing critical language skills to jump-starting their imaginations, learning to read is one of the most important things young kids will ever do. By lining one of these bookshelves with children’s stories, fiction paperbacks, poetry compilations and some interesting nonfiction pieces, you'll ensure that your youngster has plenty of age-appropriate literature at his or her disposal. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best bookshelf for kids on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 17, 2018: While the Sauder Beginnings isn’t decorated like a kid’s shelf, it’s a nice size that provides easy access to toddlers and young children. Included the Wallniture Denver to give people a wall mountable option in case they lack the necessary floor space in their home for even a small bookshelf. Noted that the KidKraft Firehouse does not include a wall anchor, which prevented it from ranking higher on the list.
