Thanks to a tip from our friend Carolyn, I have re-purposed a standing bookshelf that we no longer have space for as a reading bench for Z. She loves it, and it fits perfectly under the window in her room. So far there is a lot of standing, lying, and playing that goes on the bench. With time I'm hoping that the reading will happen. There is, however, lots of reading that happens on the love seat in the living room. As you can see from this picture of Zosia (and if you look closely you can see Lily, who has been given a toy by Zosia).
