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! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  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 works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

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
