This house sitter play chair doubles as a seat and dollhouse—you can’t say that about many chairs! It’s spacious enough for a little family and their furnishings. Other uses for it—as a nightstand or bookshelf—make it that much more versatile. This rainbow garland is just the thing to brighten up any reading nook for the spring. Stored in our house sitter chair is a small collection of fresh children’s literature. Here are a few of our favorites for spring reading:
- Lulu and Pip, an endearing tale by the author, photographer and artist who brought you Kiki and Coco in Paris. This one has a Northern California twist to it.
- Flashlight, an engaging book for exploring the wonder of night, nature and art. With your flashlight, of course!
- Opposites, from the Touch Think Learn series, which uses an important, hands-on aspect of learning–the tactile modality–to give life to a child’s first pairs of opposite words.
- Telephone, a hilarious story about a message that goes topsy turvy as it makes its way through a group of birds (not unlike the fun game you might have played in elementary school).
Happy spring and happy reading!
