Joe Frog Book Tablet Holder



This pattern was inspired by my son. He’s not too keen on reading and I tried to encourage his somehow and make reading more fun. Towards the evening he was also complaining that he’s too tired to hold the book so I came up with the idea of making him something to prop his book on and that’s how the book holder series came about (new designs coming soon). This crochet holder is also ideal for resting tablets, kindles etc.

This book/tablet holder is not only a fun toy but also a very useful learning tool. After I’ve created this book holder I’ve found out that presenting reading or math material in a vertical format is conducive to better learning. That’s because the mind is able to process in a more natural manner of looking forward rather than looking downward.

Thanks to this holder your child can even have a drink while reading or watching films on their tablets! How cool is that?

To save, you can buy this pattern in a 2 pack with Suzi The Owl for £6.80 (around $9).






Crochet Hook:

Size 8 mm/L – for double chunky/bulky yarn

(Note this yarn calls for 10 mm/N hook. I’ve used 8 mm hook so the holes between the stitches are minimal. If your store doesn’t stock this yarn you should be able to substitute it with any other yarn that calls for 10 mm hook. Just check your gauge/tension.)
