I'm not familiar with the toy library concept. I can imagine what you're talking about (I think) but can you elaborate on exactly how it works, what it looks like, how to explain it to a sensitive and possessive almost-5 year old? (Or is there a link where this is already desecribed?).

Oops sorry – didn't notice it in the previous post (even though I really did read it!). Thanks!

parisienne mais presque

Another mom who goes with the "can't have too many books" theory. Le Petit already has quite a library and I'm sure it will soon be overwhelming, just like ours. I justify it to myself perhaps a bit too easily because it isn't easy to find English children's books in Paris.

Since our apartment is tiny, I'll have to think hard about how to organize a toy library. So much of dealing with a small space is constant putting away, organizing and sorting, and I want le Petit to learn that it can be if not exactly *fun* at least *satisfying* to do it. Sometimes I play a little "let's find ten things that aren't where they belong and put them away" game with him "helping" in the sling.

Love the thoughts on smell and taste.
