Welcome back to Gear Daddy, I am your host daddy Troy and we are in the middle of book week at Dadlabs, so today I am reviewing the sling bookcase by One Step Ahead. It allows you to display books, cover forward rather than spying forward and I am giving one of these away so stick around until the end of the video and I’ll tell you how you can get one. The sling bookcase from One Step Ahead allows you to store and display your kids’ books from small kids books all the way to larger format books. With kids’ books the illustrations are just as important as the words. This bookshelf allows me to actually see the covers of the books, it gives me a visual cue for kids who might not be reading yet and actually see what a book is about, and this bookshelf will not replace the family bookshelf with hundreds of books that you receive and bought for your kids. Instead, it is a way for you to store and display books in areas where you actually read with your kids. We do not all sit down by the bookshelf and read wit h our kids, instead we might read on the family couch, that is nowhere near a bookshelf. This allows you tot take away the clutter and take these books up off the floor in the coffee table and put them into the bookcase. It also has some storage bins so if you have some book overflow or a few toys or other reading materials, you can put them right here. And it also allows you as a family to be deliberate in your book choices. For example, for the week, you as a family could sit down and say what books are we going to read for the week? Your Children can go to the bookshelf and figure out and then actually the kids can go and place these onto the bookcase. This is a really kid friendly bookcase, it is low slung, it is easy for kids, little hands to put the books in and out of, they have a sense of ownership that it’s theirs and so it really promotes family reading. So it is the sling bookcase from One Step Ahead, it gets the Dadlabs seal of approval and if you want to win one, go to dadlabs.com, we’re giving one away, leave a comment on this particular video, we will see you next time at dadlabs.com.
