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.

Excerpt from A Fair Claimant: Being a Story for GirlsBlanche Bethune stood on the steps which led from the door of her beautiful h...ome into the sheltered garden she called especially her own, and knew that the sadness of the outside world echoed her own thoughts. She felt that she cared nothing at that moment for the beauty and comfort which had once been her delight; that She could not breathe freely indoors under her husband's roof, though She could hear in the distance the sound of the wheels of the carriage which was taking him away.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Meet Old Lobo, a gigantic grey wolf whose death-defying predations on sheep and cattle herds are the scourge of farmers and ranche...rs in the Currumpaw region of northern New Mexico. This great wolf is just one of the animals whose true stories come to life in this engrossing collection of tales by the celebrated naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946). Combining scientific observations of animals in their natural habitats with a romantic vision of nature and the narrative skills of a born storyteller, Seton created an extraordinary collection of tales that gave the animal story new force and believability as a literary genre. Critically and popularly acclaimed upon its initial appearance in 1898, Wild Animals I Have Known remains, more than a century later, the best-known and best-loved of his works. read more

Excerpt from Tame Animals I Have Known: With Apologies to Such Wild Animals as May Feel Aggrieved by ComparisionI believe, as also... do Mr. Thompson-seton and others, that natural history has lost much by the vague general treatment that is so common. What satisfaction would be derived from a ten page sketch of the habits and the customs of Ani mals in general? How much more gossipy and profitable it would be to devote that space to some particular individual. This is the principle I have endeavored to apply to my Animals. The real personality of the individual and his View of life are my theme, rather than the ways of the race in general, as viewed by a casual and hostile human eye.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
