    Do you only have these books out? Or others, I have an endless book mess because we have a big kids bookshelf in the girls room!

      Yes for the younger children I have the season’s themed books out in a basket by the couch a well as in a little book shelf in their bedroom for before bedtime. The rest of their books are put away. My son who is 9 and my daughter who is 7 have a few more selections in their rooms- chapter books and reference books but even these I try to keep to a minimal- it is difficult!
