Guidecraft Universal Book Display & Storage Review

As an educator and a mom, I am impressed every month with the high quality educational toys and furniture selection available from Guidecraft. As a proud member of the Guidecraft Educators Blog Team, I have the opportunity to introduce you to the best educational products available as well as some fabulous bloggers. You can even enter a giveaway this month to win a Universal Book Display & Storage system from Guidecraft!

The Universal Book Display & Storage system is made of birch ply and is a stylish addition to the school room with practical features including five tiered shelves on one side and the ability to store large sized book on the second side.

I am an avid reader and enjoy daily story time so therefore I always have lots of books available for the children who are pre-readers and early readers. Prior to using the Universal Book Display, our book collection would inevitably become a jumbled mess that was not easily accessible by the kids for reading time. Thankfully, the Universal Book Display provides a wonderful book display case that makes it easy to display and store reading material.

I appreciate that this book display unit is very sturdy (it is 40lbs) so I do not have to worry about leaving it in the school room for use by children who are ages 4, 5 and 6. It was also quite easy to assemble and I proudly put this together by myself in under an hour.

I notice that my children have been independently selecting a much wider variety of books to read because they are able to see all of the books covers and do not have to dig through a mound of books to find the one that interests them. It is also a nice height for younger children and the Universal Book Display has made reading a more pleasurable experience for everyone.

I have purchased several inferior book displays in the past that did not stand the test of time because of canvas that fell apart or wood/plastic that was easily broken. With Guidecraft, I never have to worry about it being a high quality product and in fact it usually exceeds my expectation which is the case with the Universal Book Display.

To purchase the Universal Book Display for only $200 or to learn more about all of the educational products available at Guidecraft you are invited to visit their website and browse the entire selection.
