Learning Spaces/Giveaway: Bookshelves

I've always taken Esmé's learning environment seriously. Before she was born, I read up on how bold images, first in black and white, then in primary colors, do the most to stimulate a baby's mental activity. So when I was checking out baby cribs and nursery decor, that was at the forefront of my mind.

Since then, we've progressed to the pink and fluffy and pony and kitty stage.  It's taking me a lot longer to make the switch than it is Esmé!  :)

She's closing in on the reading stage right now, so I've been checking into ways to help your child love reading. And one of them is to help him create his own library of favorite books.

Of course, that loved library needs a loved home! I enjoyed checking out Baby Cribs Plus'  kiddy bookshelves. This dollhouse one would be perfect in our house!


For this first edition of Learning Spaces, I'm excited that Baby Cribs Plus will be giving away a children's bookshelf to one lucky reader!

You've got two choices:

To enter to win one bookshelf from Baby Cribs Plus:
  • Just leave a comment on this post stating which bookshelf you want to win:  the dollhouse or the puzzle. Make sure I have some way to contact you.
  • If you follow or subscribe, leave a second comment for a second entry.
  • And here's a third entry option:  Visit Baby Cribs Plus and then comment here with one other nursery furniture item you'd like from their site.
US entries only...  We'll pick a winner on May 5.

I visited their site and there's so much! Because i already have nursery furniture my eyes were drawn to the rugs section! The brown and pink flowered rug and the hopscotch rug (more for the playroom I guess)!

I really like the Steffy Book Cases with Adjustable Shelves. Wide and fairly short (two-three shelves) it would hold lots of books but also would not dominate the room (like a taller bookcase would).

Carrie said...

Wow! That's quite a deal! I'd pick the puzzle one if I were to win.

Thank you so much for hosting such a fabulous giveaway!
