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 is the first book in the series, Chronicles of the Nephilim For Young Adults. Before Noah, before the Flood, the world was wicked beyond imagination. But one man stood out from the rest: Enoch. "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him." That's all the Biblical book of Genesis tells us about this enigmatic primordial holy man. The ancient Book of Enoch tells us that he pronounced judgment on the fallen Watchers and their giant progeny, the Nephilim of Genesis chapter 6. But what if that holy calling meant that Enoch was a giant killer?

Six Giant Assassins. Goliath Was Only the First. David Ascendant: Young Adult Edition is a version of the original novel David Asc...endant edited to be appropriate for ages 13 and above, Grades 8 and above. It is the seventh book in the series, Chronicles of the Nephilim For Young Adults. Everyone knows the story of David. Or so you think. No one has heard it told this way before. In the days of Samuel the Seer, the Philistines are at the climax of a long war with Israel over the land of Canaan. There are still giants in Philistia left from Joshua's search and destroy mission of holy war generations earlier. Their numbers have grown. The young Philistine giant warrior Goliath creates an elite warrior cult of giants, The Sons of Rapha, whose sole ambition is to kill the promised messiah king of Israel. The only problem is, Israel's King Saul is not that chosen one, because he is possessed by the evil spirit of an ancient malevolent ruler who seeks to kill that same anointed king. They both discover it is David, son of Jesse, a young insignificant shepherd musician who woos the girls, and who miraculously slays Goliath in a battle contest. But now David is running for his life from both family and foe, gathering outlaws as allies, and eventually hiding in the one place no one would ever dream of: Goliath's home town, the Philistine city of Gath. With David in the Serpent's lair, the queen of Gath trying to trap him, King Saul and the Philistine giants trying to assassinate him, and David's three wives all vying for his attention, this romantic action adventure story will take you places in the Bible you've never seen before. You think you know how it ends. But there is so much more to the story than you ever realized. The War of the Seed continues with the Philistines vs. the Messiah King of Israel. Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology David Ascendant: Young Adult Edition is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings read more

By examining the novels of critically and commercially successful authors such as Sarah Dessen ("Someone Like You"), Stephenie Mey...er (the "Twilight" series), and Laurie Halse Anderson ("Speak"), "Reading Like a Girl: Narrative Intimacy in Contemporary American Young Adult Literature" explores the use of narrative intimacy as a means of reflecting and reinforcing larger, often contradictory, cultural expectations regarding adolescent women, interpersonal relationships, and intimacy. "Reading Like a Girl" explains the construction of narrator-reader relationships in recent American novels written about adolescent women and marketed to adolescent women. Sara K. Day explains, though, that such levels of imagined friendship lead to contradictory cultural expectations for the young women so deeply obsessed with reading these novels. Day coins the term narrative intimacy to refer to the implicit relationship between narrator and reader that depends on an imaginary disclosure and trust between the story s narrator and the reader. Through critical examination, the inherent contradictions between this enclosed, imagined relationship and the real expectations for adolescent women s relations prove to be problematic. In many novels for young women, adolescent female narrators construct conceptions of the adolescent woman reader, constructions that allow the narrator to understand the reader as a confidant, a safe and appropriate location for disclosure. At the same time, such novels offer frequent warnings against the sort of unfettered confession the narrators perform. Friendships are marked as potential sites of betrayal and rejection. Romantic relationships are presented as inherently threatening to physical and emotional health. And so, the narrator turns to the reader for an ally who cannot judge. The reader, in turn, may come to depend upon narrative intimacy in order to vicariously explore her own understanding of human expression and bonds." read more

Vibrant, dynamic teen book clubs―the kind teens eagerly anticipate and attend session after session―are teen-centered. With innova...tive, pragmatic ideas that will attract and retain teen readers, this guide provides everything you need to run a successful, teen-centered book club. Covering every step, from planning and promoting to how to prompt discussion and keep it civilized, this is a one-stop source for the teen book club leader. Dozens of reproducibles for teens include book lists, ground rules, and book-based activities. The book even has directions for evaluating your club and lists of resources for more information. Whether you're starting a teen book club, trying to revive a flagging program, or wish to build on past success, if you're involved in a teen book club, this guide is a must.What's the difference between a teen book club and an adult one? Too often, the answer is Not much. Like so many programs for teens, traditional book clubs tend to be scaled-down versions of adult clubs. If book selection, taboo topics, and logistical details are the most important things that set your teen book club apart from an adult one, you could be missing a huge opportunity. Vibrant, dynamic teen book clubs―the kind teens eagerly anticipate and attend session after session―are teen-centered. They're not merely by, for and about teens, but are grounded in the admittedly radical idea that the club is not primarily about library programming or even about books (!) but is all about teens―their interests and needs, their social habits and styles, their initiative. Books are the medium and the club is the method to achieve the ultimate goal of developing teen readers and leaders. Furthermore, the teen-centered book club has huge potential to further a whole range of library goals, from bringing more teen patrons through the door, to building community-wide awareness and support for the library itself. What sets this book apart from the typical book club guide is that it is the only guide that addresses the unique constraints of public and school libraries―budgeting, impact on the facility and the collection, and potential attempts at censorship, to name just a few. It's also the only guide that takes a teen-centered approach, putting front-and-center the idea that, as with so many other things, book clubs for teens are not merely scaled-back versions of adult clubs. Whether you are starting a club, attempting to revive a flagging program, or building on past success, this manual offers you innovative, pragmatic ideas that will attract and retain teen readers. Grades 6-12.Teen Book Clubs offers a fresh new approach for today's teen readers and clear instructions, along with tips and ideas, for building teen-centered book clubs. In 12 brief chapters the book covers: the teen-centered book club: what it is and what it takes to make it work putting it together: planning and putting the plan in action going public: recruiting, boosting visibility, garnering support 15 cunningly creative types of teen book clubs using book club to develop teen leaders scads of book lists, reproducibles, and sample discussion prompters tweaking, troubleshooting, and tips for keeping it civilized evaluations beyond measure resources for more information.
