A List of Bathroom Reads

It’s Read in the Bathtub Day, so grab your favorite book, fill the bath with bubbles and get to reading!

Keeping children’s books in every room in the home, including the bathroom, is a great way to turn kids into avid readers. As we shared in a previous post, data from the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report™: 6th Edition took a closer look at where children’s books are found in the home – and we created this infographic to show where those books are, which books parents recommend kids read and more.

I must admit, I’ve been known to waterlog a book or two while reading in the tub, and to encourage you all to do the same here are a few suggestions for best books to keep in the bathroom for all ages:
