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.

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.

On a drowsy afternoon by a riverbank, a young and distracted Alice follows a rabbit into a fantastical underground world that grow...s curiouser and curiouser. Dared, insulted, amused, and threatened by a succession of anthropomorphic creatures, the indomitable Alice falls deeper into a swirl of the imagination where logic has no place.Referenced, resourced, analyzed, and embraced since its publication in 1865, Carroll’s masterpiece of the irrational has inspired such varied artists as Walt Disney, Marilyn Manson, Jerome Kern, James Joyce, and Tim Burton.

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a tale in which the subordinate actors are quite as excellent in their way as the leading ch...aracter. They are differentiated from each other by a variation in their personalities, rather than by an inequality in their ability to entertain. Creatures are they of a vagrant fancy, which, like a rushing mountain stream, ofttimes reflects distorted images, but is ever pure, with the sunlight glancing from its bosom. But, like the rapid-flowing brook, there are placid pools in its course, and in one crystal, reposeful spot is the face of Alice. " Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a book which appeals alike to young and old. It is an object-lesson that tends to make us realize the truth of the adage, "Men are but boys grown tall." read more
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” --- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland Alice's Adven...tures in Wonderland Lewis CARROLL (1832 - 1898) Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition™ includes a glossary and reader’s notes to help the modern reader contend with Le...wis Carroll’s language, themes, and symbols. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865, is usually thought of as a simple fantasy tale for children, enjoyable for its fun and whimsy. Through the years, though, the book has grown to become one of the most popular novels in literature, both for children and adults. Deeper than mere fantasy, Alice is a text rich in symbolism, satire, and thematic levels of meaning. The rigid and often nonsensical society filled with odd situations, incomprehensible rules, and unforgettable characters that Carroll allows us to enter is one that readers will fondly remember for the rest of their lives. read more
One of the English language's most popular and frequently quoted books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was the creation of Charl...es Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a distinguished scholar and mathematician who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. Intended for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense. As Alice explores a bizarre underground world, she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts: the White Rabbit, March Hare, and Mad Hatter; the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat; the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other extraordinary personalities. This edition features Sir John Tenniel's complete original illustrations, bringing to life a beloved classic that has delighted readers and listeners since its first publication in 1865. read more
HarperCollins is proud to present its range of best-loved, essential classics.‘Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by... her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, “and what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”’So begins the tale of Alice, who follows a curious White Rabbit down a hole and falls into Wonderland, a fantastical place where nothing is quite as it seems: animals talk, nonsensical characters confuse, Mad Hatters throw tea parties and the Queen plays croquet. Alice’s attempts to find her way home become increasingly bizarre, infuriating and amazing in turn.A beloved classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has continued to delight readers, young and old, for over 150 years. read more

Not simply one but two enthralling classics of children's literature, Treasured by adults and passed lovingly from generation to ...generation. Sweet plucky Alice comes across a flustered little rabbit that is just awfully, terribly late. His pocket watch ticks furiously and before you know it she tumbles down and down and down the tiny rabbit hole into a world she could never have imagined. Alice takes on a laconic pipe smoking caterpillar, fences with the mischievous Cheshire cat and has to act sharply in order to keep a firm hold on her own head. Feel befuddled in the foggy pipe smoke and your heart beating faster with Alice as she runs from the court of the Queen of Hearts. Lewis Carroll had the rare knack of retaining the flair of a child's imagination into his adulthood and for more than long enough to use his literary prowess to bring not one masterpiece to life but two. Alice Through the Looking Glass visits an older Alice and finds her in repose. The world beyond the looking glass can hardly be resisted however and she is pulled into the world of the jabberwocky, the arch Red Queen, the forgetful White Queen and a high stakes chess game. She fares as best she can amongst the nursery rhyme characters and wonderland denizens and strives to checkmate the Red King. Carroll delves even further into the delightfully surreal in this sequel and leaves Alice and the reader wondering which version is truly the dream and which version the reality.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Lewis Carroll is a pen-name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was the author's real name and he was lecturer in Mathematics in Christ Chur...ch, Oxford. Dodgson began the story on 4 July 1862, when he took a journey in a rowing boat on the river Thames in Oxford together with the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, with Alice Liddell (ten years of age) the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and with her two sisters, Lorina (thirteen years of age), and Edith (eight years of age). As is clear from the poem at the beginning of the book, the three girls asked Dodgson for a story and reluctantly at first he began to tell the first version of the story to them. There are many half-hidden references made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. The North-East dialect of Scots, locally called the "Doric", has a long and distinguished history as the medium of one of the liveliest and most individual local literatures in Scotland. It first emerged in literary form during the Vernacular Revival of the eighteenth century; an outstanding practitioner of the mid-nineteenth century was Lewis Carroll's friend George MacDonald, who, though his lasting renown is mainly founded on his children's books and fantasy stories, wrote many domestic novels set wholly or partly in his North-Eastern calf-ground, in which the dialect is skilfully presented. In translating Alice, Derrick McClure has endeavoured to find some kind of counterpart for every literary and linguistic trick in the original: that is an ambitious aim, but any translation above the level of a mere crib is a tribute to its source, and an original of such ingenuity as this book deserves the highest tribute possible, in a translation which pays full attention to all the clever and delightful tricks with which Carroll adorned his text. It is the author's hope that the translation will be read not simply as a linguistic curiosity or a test case for some of the problems of literary translation, but as a not unworthy addition to the corpus of Doric literature and Scots children's writing. read more

Many half-hidden references are made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. This edition presents the first translation of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" into Scots (which historically has also been known as "Inglis"). This language is a descendant of Old Northumbrian, the Old English once spoken from the Humber to the Lothians. It is closely related to Standard English, but differs from it in many particulars of both grammar and vocabulary. The translator has used traditional spellings such as might be seen in the works of Burns, Scott, Slater, and many others, though without the "apologetic apostrophes" often seen in these works. This is in harmony with most writings in Scots from the eighteenth century onwards, and makes for comfortable reading for modern Scots speakers brought up with those traditions. read more
Francis K. Johnson devised Ñspel (pronounced "Ingspell") as a comprehensive and radical reform of English spelling, because he be...lieves that, in the case of such a magnificently complex and subtle language as English, piecemeal and conservative proposals cause more problems than they solve. Ñspel is largely phonemic, but also has a remarkable conciseness, owing much to the earlier traditions of shorthands. This edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is aimed at highlighting the question of spelling reform and to add an extra charm to the reader's journey, alongside Alice, to Wonderland. read more
