My favorite for the month was hands down All the World. Such a sweet book. Nora's favorite was Spring for Sophie which she has been repeating lines from all month. Henry's favorite was They All Saw a Cat (followed closely by Lenny & Lucy). Augustus enjoyed looking at Black Cat & White Cat

Thank you for sharing these! I'm not familiar with Cloth Lullaby, but it looks beautiful, I want to look for that one at our library.

I have an unrelated question for you - do you have any experience traveling with children used to a floor bed? We have a bunch of travel coming up and I'm not sure what to do, as I don't necessarily want our little guy crawling all over (i.e. licking...) a hotel room floor. I feel like if he slept in our bed though, he might crawl over us and fall? Thanks for any advice!!
Cloth Lulaby is a great book, but for an older crowd, like 6+!

As far as floor bed goes, we have always just used a pack 'n play when we travel, so I'm sorry that's probably not helpful if your avoiding containers.
That is still helpful, thank you! I'm definitely not against using a pack 'n play when we travel, I just wasn't sure he'd go for it since he's not used to sleeping contained like that - I guess we'll just try it and see. Thanks!!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many work

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
