Beautiful and Functional

This shelf is the perfect size and height for my young child. She absolutely loves seeing her books displayed, and can't wait to go pick out her favorites for story time!

The quality and care put into the design and build are top notch. It was also easy to assemble, and included helpful hardware (wrench & drill bit options are great). We're very happy with this shelf, as well as the other items we've purchased from RAD!

Blew away expectations

I don’t know what I was expecting, but this blew away any of my expectations. Beautiful piece of furniture that is appropriately heavy (feels very solid), and books fit perfectly. I thought shelves may be too narrow for some of the bigger board books based on pictures, but there is plenty of room as shelves are deeper than I thought. It was super easy to assemble, and it came with an a hex wrench and drill bit. Drill bit was a super nice touch and made assembling even easier. I could assemble it as one person who has limited assembly experience. If you are new to assembly, like me, make sure to install an anti-tip kit! There are instructions on RAD's website, or on youtube. Our child absolutely loves this and I was able to assemble the entire thing very quickly. So beautiful and so happy with it! They love running and picking their books and it helps them (and us) by removing visual clutter. She loves picking out books even more now that they face forward and makes book rotation easier. Added a picture so you can see.

Perfect for my Kindergarten Classroom!

I teach Kindergarten and I ADORE this shelf for displaying all of our monthly read aloud books! It’s the perfect height for my students, and is beautifully made. Easy to assemble, and will absolutely be a staple in my classroom for years to come.
