As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

It’s always prime time for a summer rhyme! Who doesn’t have fond memories of the last day of school? The weather is the warmest it...’s been all year, the days are long and sunny, and there’s a sense that something is calling. . . that something called “summer.” Whether it’s grilling hot dogs and burgers on the BBQ, playing make-believe superhero, camping out and eating s’mores, or spending lazy afternoons in your club house, there is nothing like summer! And the poems of Summertime Rhyme capture all of your favorite moments and memories of the sunniest season of all. But not only that, the illustrations in this book are the work of kids who see the bright side of life as a result of surviving a darker side of life — cancer. No one knows the fun of summer like a child who’s had to miss it, being isolated from friends while undergoing cancer treatment. These delightful illustrations depict their vision of summertime, when hope is as big as the bright, blue skies. Your purchase makes a difference! 60% of the royalties from Amazon sales of this book go to the nonprofit Hopecam ($1.31 per book). Since 2003, Hopecam has connected kids isolated during cancer treatment with their friends, family, classmates, and teachers through video technology. As challenging and difficult as battling cancer is, children suffer additional emotional hardship from the isolation — in fact, some of them find it the worst part. Hopecam's program has changed this, making it possible for kids of all income levels and demographics to stay connected during their treatment. Video technology seems unremarkable in this day and age, but 70% of Hopecam's children live below the poverty level, where access to video communication is not ordinary. The illustrations in this book were drawn by kids who have survived cancer and gone through Hopecam's program. They thank you for your support and urge you to visit Hopecam.org for more information. read more

"A Fine Book of Letters" grew out of an exhibition of watercolors I created for a show on Martha's Vineyard in 2008. When I began ...the project I wanted to create letters with images that related to my life and environment. So, for example, I used my bunny for the "B". I also looked for flowers that grew around me and birds that inhabit my yard. The one exception is the California Quail. I really wanted to do the quail that has that cute little feather on it's forehead. Once I had done the whole alphabet if just seemed natural to make it into a book. The text just seemed to flow. And, I didn't "dumb it down". There are big words in here, which makes it a fun book for adults to read to children. It took a few tries, a lot of help from my book designer, A.Michelle, and a successful Kickstarter project to get the book self-published. It sold out in a couple of years and I was at a l loss as to how to get it reprinted until Create Space was recommended to me. When people ask me about purchasing the book I can now send them to Amazon! read more
