It’s because of this book, Yvette is learning this now.
Love this book. Olivia is a pig. Yvette loves pig!
This Olivia lives with her mother, her father, her brother & her dog, Perry. Yvette has no brother and dog….
Yvette loves dressed up. Yvette loves beach.
Olivia and Yvette are birds of the feathers. Both of them never like to nap!
They are very mischievous. Sleeping is never on their cards. Getting them to sleep is really really difficult! And what Olivia does before her bedtime is exactly the same.
Yvette loves this book. So do I. Reason – The ending is so true!
We went to the library and I found the “third” pig into Yvette’s reading world.
Remember there is a green colour round table in our living hall. I have removed this table and asked hubby to buy us new shelving unit to keep the toys and books. As I been stressing how important the living environment for a child to nurture habits and reading, I have certainly spent lots of time revamping the house again.
I started to pack Yvette’s toys and books on last Saturday. I took two days to finish all the packing and here are the result which I love it so much as of now.
I swapped the little table from the diagonal corner to this corner with her little piano. We brought two magenta shelves (colour chosen by Yvette) from the furniture near our house. Initially we plan to get it from Ikea. But after considering the cost and time involve, we abolished the decision. I love our new shelves. Instead of placing them in standing position, I choose to lay them flat on the ground so that I can slack them up. I plan to buy another one to maximize the storage space.
Here the close up of the shelves. Going forward, instead of leaving Yvette’s bag on the floor, now she has to place her bag onto the shelves like what is practiced in school. Books are consolidated here too instead of placing them all over the living room now. (Removed the learning material from the TV console too.)
Now the shelving units that near the door will only pack with toys. (Above picture. Below picture is the overall feel of the hall now.)
Since we have made several trips to Ikea before we finalized this decision. We found this very useful. Again this to culture good habit and easy assess of material.
As I mentioned I have consolidated most all the books and packed them neatly again. I have removed those materials I used to teach Yvette to another room and moved down most books. Yvette had grown taller and now she is able to reach out book in the first level. (This is the book shelves storage unit in her room.)
Lastly this is the setup of our cozy room now.
Wow, while updating the post, I read back my archive and noted that this was the sixth time I repack our living hall. (Read the history here.)
