I needed somewhere to keep my children's library books, and decided to give this book display a try. It serves the purpose very well. It is a lot easier to find our library books when we need to return them, and I think the kids read them more too, since they are displayed nicely and easy to access. It does not display a large amount of books, but is fine for the 12-15 books that we needed it for. My one complaint would be that I had a very difficult time putting this together! I generally consider myself pretty handy (I fixed our bathroom sink the other day!), but I was surprised at how much trouble I had assembling this. It was confusing to me which side of the canvas was the front and back, and I had some trouble with the rods, so I ended up assembling it twice before I got it right. Also, I had to iron the material first (low setting), because it came so wrinkled. Once together, however, it looks nice and has done a great job for our purpose for it. Pros: Attractive book display Cons: Difficult to put together

I purchased this bookcase for my daughter's babyshower. I asked everyone to bring a book to the shower for the new baby. It was well constructed and held over thirty books with no problems. The material is good quality and nice pastel colors. This bookcase was well worth the purchase and my granddaughter will be able to use this for many years to come. I would recommend this bookcase to a friend.

This is our second bookshelf in this style. Works great for kids books. Easy for children to see the books, put away books and it holds a ton of books. We will use for years to come. Especially great since kids books come in so many different sizes. It's also nice that you can see so many, otherwise you end up only reading the top ones that kids can see if in bin. Easy to assemble. Very happy.
An easy-to-assemble book display with plenty of room!
Heather from Los Gatos, CA – Verified Buyer
This book display was so easy to put together and, once it was assembled, held SO many books! I'm amazed that my 30+ books all fit into the 5 shelves--note, not all of the books can be seen, some are hidden behind other books, but at least all the books have a place within this book display. I love it and the natural linen looks great in my son's nursery.
A good buy
Eve from Arnold, MD – Verified Buyer
This is perfect for my two year old's bedroom. It was easy to assemble and very lightweight. We don't have to worry about it falling over on him and was great for space saver as it is very slim. My only complaint is that not many books fit into it and if you have a toddler they tend to jam them down into the pockets making them difficult to retrieve. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase!
Great for daughters room
Krista from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
This book holder works well in my daughter's room. We live in NYC and are short on space, so this is sleek and perfect for small spaces. My daughter is 20 months and has no trouble removing books from the rack (she isn't big on cleaning up yet, so I can't speak to putting them back!). I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because it does not hold as many books as I expected/hoped.
Perfect for library books
Nancy G from Arlington, MA – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
We put this in our 3 yr old daughters bedroom as a special place for the library books (so I dont' have to go searching for them when they are due). She loves being able to reach them herself, and putting books away has become very easy. Its a small bookshelf with a very small footprint. Assembly took about 20 minutes and it didn't seem very high quality as we were putting it together, but it is quite sturdy in reality. We liked it so much that we ended up buying another one of these for auction at her school. All the kids in the classroom decorated the canvas portion with handprints, which made a great gift.
Twins Love It

We purchased two of these sling bookshelves for our living room. Each shelf shows the faces of eight books, but we ARE able to fit many more than just those books because we pile them in behind the front books. Our boys (17 months) love to grab books, and as they see more books behind the front ones, they keep grabbing. They are also able to help me clean up the books by putting them back in the bookshelves. These shelves were super easy to put together, then are sturdy, and they created a natural reading area in our living room that the boys love to quietly sit in. My husband and I LOVE them.
Pamela from Warren, MI
I purchased this bookshelf for my daughter to display children books she received during her baby shower. Everyone at the shower was impressed and several younger mothers wanted to know where it came from as they liked the size and how easy it would be for their little ones to get a favorite book. Best of all my daughter gets to take home the bookshelf that will have a beginning library set up for her little one.
Books flop forward
Laura from Norfolk, VA – Verified Buyer
Books in the canvas slings tend to tip forward, so they don't really present easily/show their fronts to the room. However, it is still very functional and will work great for a small child to pick books and put them away.
