you are correct. this is not an image of children's books. but i was reading an article the other day on organizing kid's rooms and took away this awesome tip, "make it easier to put something away than it is to get it out." and now you're asking yourself, how does this relate to records? instead of storing children's books on a traditional bookshelf (where kids can take usually remove them in one fell swoop), organize them like records in a store. grab a shallow tin pan or plastic container and store them front to back. that way, your child will have to flip through the books (making them hard to take out, but oh-so easy to put back).
