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 The Pale HorseThe soul of Russia is revealed even more in her literature than in the realities of her life. If her ac...tivities are handicapped in many ways, her spirit lives in a sort of Utopian Freeland, where it is concerned only with problems of spiritual law and spiritual obligations. Russian novels - certainly the best of them - express this spirit, and are for that reason 'human documents' of great intensity.Each epoch of Russia's spiritual life is expressed in a few books of a highly imaginative character. Among those literary works which illuminate with a rare light the period just before the war, the problems which had to be faced by the heroic will and the mystic tendencies of a tragically unbalanced generation, Ropshin's Pale Horse ranks as one of the most characteristic.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

(Musicals). Shake It Up With Shakespeare is part of the Rise and Shine Series. This musical for 2-part voices will provide your st...udents with a fun and unforgettable introduction to English literature's most famous writer, William Shakespeare. Shakespeare not only wrote a wide range of plays and sonnets that touch upon all aspects of the "human condition," he also created words and phrases that are still very much a part of our everyday language. Through the use of an easily memorized rhyming script and a healthy sprinkling of his most famous quotes, this musical serves as the basis for an overview of five well-known Shakespearean plays. The opening song is followed by five musical selections that highlight the essence of the plays featured: two comedies, two tragedies and one history. Along with his ability to expose the darker aspects of human nature, Shakespeare also demonstrated a gift for highlighting the humorous side of everyday life. The six original songs written for this musical are more reflective of the latter perspective of his works. The Enhanced Teacher Edition includes piano/vocal arrangements, rhyming program script as well as choreography, prop, staging and performance suggestions. The enclosed CD-ROM offers reproducible singer and speaking parts. A performance/accompaniment CD is available separately or in a kit with the enhanced Teacher edition. Suggested for Grades 2-5. Performance Time: 20 minutes. read more
