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.

Here is the story of Tom, Huck, Becky, and Aunt Polly; a tale of adventures, pranks, playing hockey, and summertime fun. Written b...y the author sometimes called "the Lincoln of literature," The Adventures of Tom Sawyer was surprisingly neither a critical nor a financial success when it was first published in 1876. It was Mark Twain's first novel. However, since then Tom Sawyer has become his most popular work, enjoying dramatic, film, and even Broadway musical interpretations. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a fascinating and adventurous book about a boy named Tom Sawyer. He has a major crush on a girl called Becky Thacker. In this book, Tom goes to an island with two of his friends, attends their own funeral, and look for treasure! Tom sees Injun Joe a killer with treasure. He wants it, but his only clue where Injun Joe hid it is that it has something to do with number 2. Tom is now lost in a cave all alone with Becky. Can he find his way out of the cave and~~ the way to the treasure? I agree with Mark Twain's decisions and ideas. I believe that I would be doing the same thing if I were in his position. His decisions are able to happen; yet The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is such a good book. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous books, and likes classics. It leaves you at so many cliffhangers that you can help but read all of it at once, for the people who like cliffhangers. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this timeless story. read more
Excerpt from Unto the Children: A Story of the RedwoodsAnd so the Vermonters went on, until they came to the head of the gorge, wh...ere the first redwoods, 200 feet high, stood portal. Jim Bascom alighted and took off his hat. Here were the trees! He had heard and he had believed, but for all that, he had doubted that any growth could attain such a proportion; here was an immense basin with mountains bordering the sides, green as far as he could see, mountains, ridges, valleys; all redwoods, a pliocene grandeur that was limited only by the distance. Jim knew woods; but compared with this, the forest that he had known was only brush. Here were silence and grandeur; where God had wrought a masterpiece out of solitude; and where man was nothing.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
