We don’t declutter their books because we can’t decide which ones to keep or where to start. Here is a way of looking at it that will show you that its possible to have kids own books they really love and want to look after.
My kids are by no means super tidy but they love what they do own. They have deliberately chosen to keep everything that is on their shelves. In the video, you will see a general idea of what they own.
In reality, they own many more books than this, but they are audible or ebooks on devices. We buy the ones that they really enjoy, and only when we know they want them or they have asked us to.
Watch these videos to see what their personal bookshelves look like when we decluttered their books.
