My grandson does, indeed, love his new bed and enjoys climbing in for nap time. The extra storage space in the closet has been very helpful and has provided much more storage space than before, when boxes, bins, etc. had to go either on the floor or on the overhead shelf. As for the bookshelf, it works great. Problem is, it's full but we have more books that still need shelving. I think it's time for a book sale!
