It's nice to be able to store children's books with the covers facing outward; this makes it easier for kids to find the books they want. The unit shown above was custom-made by the boy's grandpa, but there are products with the same idea that you can buy.
Jonti-Craft has a whole selection of Pick-A-Book stands - available both in single-sided versions (as shown above) and double-sided versions, in a range of sizes, materials, and colors.
Lakeshore Learning also has some nice book centers, such as the one shown above.
Guidecraft has this safari book display, as well as ones with a Noah's ark and circus theme.
Highsmith sells these boy and girl book holders from R·WIREworks.
And here is a wall-mounted option from The Land of Nod.
Or you could simply put books in something like a dishpan and put the dishpan on some shelves. You could use a nice basket for a somewhat classier look.
