We don't live in a big place so Ian doesn't have much room to play around in or enough space for all his toys. It's safe to say that there are always a few toys on the bed, on the bedroom floor, and all over the place. He has always had a little area where he can keep his books and some of his favorite toys but it never seemed to stay tidy. We are slowly starting to figure things out. I was on a hunt for some type of bookshelf or somewhere where Ian could keep his books. I didn't want them to be in any way hidden or out of view. Ian has tons of toys. We donate the clothes he outgrows with a bunch of the toys he seems to no longer care for a couple times a year but his toy collection only seems to grow. For a while he didn't really care for his books which I understood they were always under all his toys and it was a struggle to pull them out. We finally figured the book situation out! We still have to buy a basket for the rest of his books but since we put them in display like that Ian now grabs his books all the time and insists on reading. A few days ago we went to target and he usually likes looking at all the toys and sometimes we have a difficult time trying to get him out of there but that day he ran to the book section from the toy aisle. It's actually happened twice now! That's huge guys! I would much rather he have 100 books over 100 toys. Now to figure out his toy situation...   The "bookshelves" we used are actually picture ledges from Ikea. They were under 10$ each. They have them in two sizes and two different shades I believe. They are pretty sturdy, easy to mount on the wall, and hold up tons of books.
