At the spur of the moment I decided to take Lydia to storytime at a mom & pop bookstore near us. It’s a cute old house that’s been turned into a kids’ bookstore dream. They had every kids’ book you can imagine. Every cool educational toy, science kit and cute stuffed animal. The lady that did storytime was actually a good reader, we sang songs and even made a craft from our book (which was a sweet little book about a penguin called, Lost and Found.) I was in love. (Oh, and Lydia liked it, too.)
One of the best parts was the furniture. Everything was by Haba. Which I have known of, but to see so much of it in one place was…well, addicting. You’ll see why in just a minute.
Here’s the first little chair Lydia read a book in today. (I don’t remember what she read, because I was looking at the parenting books, mainly 1-2-3 Magic for Christian Parents. Anyone read it?)
Why yes, that is a giant helicopter on a cushion big enough for 2 kids to sit on!
Then we kept walking and discovered this!
Lydia immediately dubbed it the “p-incess tent” and we read The Story of Cherry the Piginside.
Next, we found this delicious bean bag chair nestled in between 2 bookshelves and a giant window overlooking a leafy tree.
Now that we’re home and I’ve scoured Haba’s website, I’ve discovered this is a must-have for
It’s called the Dream Gondola for goodness sakes! Who hasn’t wanted to be in a gondola once in their lives?
And our new baby MUST have this:
Is that the cutest?! When it’s done being a crib, you can turn it on it’s side and it looks just like the front of a little boat–suitable for climbing in…and reading.
I’m sure we’ll be back to storytime next week. I’m always a sucker for good books and cute furniture!
