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.

Led by Talrand, Sky Summoner, the "Depths of Power" deck specializes in casting instants and sorceries. If you've got Talrand on t...he battlefield, then any time you cast an instant or sorcery spell, Talrand creates a flying Drake token creature for you. Card-drawing spells like Divination and creature-control spells like Sleep now double as a means to victory! Augur of Bolas and Archaeomancer help out by finding more instants and sorceries for you to cast. Your plan is to relentlessly attack through the air with an army of Drakes, such as Wind Drake or any of the tokens created by Talrand's Invocation or Talrand himself, while the rest of your deck keeps your opponent off balance. Use defensive creatures like Kraken Hatchling and Fog Bank to slow your opponent's attack. If the game goes long enough, summoning gigantic sea monsters like Harbor Serpent and Stormtide Leviathan will quickly end the game. Red's brute force is the perfect complement to blue's trickery. Searing Spear and Turn to Slag deal enough damage to destroy most creatures, and Searing Spear can even finish off an opponent who's low enough on life! If you've got an affinity for this deck, you may be ready to modify it to your liking. Spelltwine ramps the deck's instant and sorcery themes into overdrive: it's a sorcery that lets you recast an instant or sorcery card from your graveyard, as well as one from your opponent's graveyard. Sphinx of Uthuun is a huge flier that puts more cards into your hand. And Jace, Memory Adept is a formidable planeswalker with powerful card-drawing abilities. 2 Archaeomancer 2 Augur of Bolas 1 Fog Bank 1 Harbor Serpent 3 Kraken Hatchling 2 Mindclaw Shaman 2 Scroll Thief 1 Stormtide Leviathan 1 Talrand, Sky Summoner 3 Wind Drake 2 Divination 1 Elixir of Immortality 1 Essence Scatter 1 Hydrosurge 1 Negate 1 Rewind 1 Ring of Evos Isle 3 Searing Spear 1 Sleep 1 Smelt 1 Switcheroo 2 Talrand's Invocation 1 Turn to read more

Not so long ago, in the tiny, isolated villages of Finland, where prolonged summer days gave way to endless winter nights, people ...would pass the time by singing the many adventures of their favorite heroes: the mighty, magical men and women of ancient days. They sang of old Vainamoinen, greatest of sages and magicians, who helped create the world but never could find a woman to wed him. They sang of his friend and ally Ilmarinen, first among craftsmen, the blacksmith who forged the dome of the heavens. They sang of Louhi, the ancient lady of Northland, whose crafty wit and magical powers made her a worthy opponent for Vainamoinen himself. And they sang of Aila, Louhi's lovely daughter, who captured the hopes of the two old friends and drew them as rivals to the shores of Northland. And while these songs could still be heard, there came along a rural doctor, a scholar, who gathered and wove them together in a book he called the Kalevala. And so he created for Finns a national epic, and for the rest of the world, a work of wonder. The songs endure, the heroes live. . . . For ages 10 and up.

He chanted again, and Joukahainen sank to his chest. "Reverse your words, undo your spells! I will give you fields for plowing, meadows for pasture." "Keep your land. My farm stretches beyond sight."

Excerpt from The Quest of the Silver Fleece: A NovelHe who would tell a tale must look toward three ideals: to tell it well, to te...ll it beautifully, and to tell the truth.The first is the Gift of God, the second is the Vision of Genius, but the third is the Reward of Honesty.In The Quest of the Silver Fleece there is little, I ween, divine or ingenious; but, at least, I have been honest. In no fact or picture have I consciously set down aught the counterpart of which I have not seen or known; and whatever the finished picture may lack of completeness, this lack is due now to the story-teller, now to the artist, but never to the herald of the Truth.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
