When kids enjoy reading, it improves all of their education
At Book Nook Enrichment, we believe that every child deserves to discover the wonder and joy that books can hold. That’s why we teach children the literacy skills they need to feel confident to read and understand every book they pick off the shelf.
Whether your child loves to read and wants more, or is frustrated every time they open a book, our calm and cozy space and expert teachers will help them soak up every wondrous word. You’ll feel confident that your child is building a foundation for their education – and loving every minute of the adventure!
The Book Nook Approach
Our magical, cozy space will transport you out of the city and into a world of books. Your child will feel inspired to dive into every book on our shelves.
Small Class Sizes
Our programming is uniquely designed to track your child individually, so they stay engaged and on track at their own pace, not on a set schedule.
Each of our class sizes are limited so that every child gets the individualized attention they deserve, tailored to what they need.
More than Reading
We use reading, art, and music to teach literacy and foster creativity for every child, so that they’re always excited for the next lesson – whatever it may be!

Meet Rina Collins, Book Nook Founder
I believe reading should be fun.
As an elementary school teacher, I saw the gaps in learning that kids were working through. With today’s class sizes and curriculum, it was difficult for many kids to keep up – or give them extra challenges if they were already excelling. When kids aren’t given the space to learn to love reading, it feels like a chore. But I knew it didn’t have to be this way.
I was determined to create a space where reading would be fun so that kids are set up for success for the rest of their education.
That’s why we opened Book Nook in 2012. As a Reading Specialist with my Masters in Literacy, I developed the Book Nook curriculum that has changed the lives of our students – and made reading fun for everyone.
