The aim of this research is to examine in depth the views of mothers about reading and buying books for their preschool children. This research was conducted through a mixed method. Quantitative data were obtained through question form from 292 mothers of preschool children based on their self-statement and qualitative data were obtained from face-to-face interviews with 9 mothers. The quantitative data obtained were evaluated by calculating frequency and percentage. Qualitative data were subjected to descriptive analysis. Results show that most of the mothers read a book in a month for themselves; have between 0 and 5 books belonging to themselves at home; read to their children every two or three days; have between 0 and 5 books belonging to their children at home; began to read books to their children at about three years old; do not have a public library in their neighborhood; choose books with their children together when buying books. In addition, most of them others stated that they have a special area at home to set aside their children's books; read to their children mostly themselves at home; like to read books to their children and their children also like being read to themselves; sometimes talk with their children about the story after reading; sometimes want from their children to make up a story by looking at the pictures in the book; buy books for their children once or twice a month.
