I have found the book cart to be a great way to encourage excitement for reading and it often engages more resistant readers and gets them involved with books. Sometimes I fill the cart with specific books for specific children and leave it in particular areas around the classroom or outside. Other times I just leave the cart in the book corner empty and the children can fill it with what ever books catch their eye and then take it off on their quest to find somewhere new to read.
