I’m thrilled to be kicking off the first week of book nook reveals for Pottery Barn Kids! Since my son Liam (now 14 months old) has started walking and leading the way, I wanted to add a touch of a “growing boy” to his nursery as it transitions to be a little boy’s room. The first idea that came to mind was to create a quiet place to read stories, enjoy cuddles and have some fun. So, a teepee reading nook sounded like the perfect place to start!
Liam is one busy boy! He’s now running around looking for new adventures and places to explore, so I love how a simple yet dramatic teepee added some fun and coziness to his room. We pretend that we’re in the middle of the wilderness, reading beneath the stars!
He loves his new reading teepee and cuddling into the pillows and soft blanket – he completely owns his new territory!
Multiple stories have already been read with the lights dimmed low, his grand light star shining the way through his new adventures.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how my teepee book nook turned out – and guess what? You can create this look, too! Enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a $100 Pottery Barn Kids gift card to get started on your child’s own reading space. Hurry – the giveaway ends this Sunday, July 13th!

Throughout my childhood, both of my grandmas kept beautiful gardens. I remember feeling the importance of helping out, as well as the excitement of picking and eating the vegetables and fruits when they were ready.
Now that I have kids, it’s even more fun watching their proud faces as they help out in our little garden: planting seeds, watching them sprout up, then finally crunching on a freshly picked prize.
When I started working on this coloring sheet, my kids immediately got out their pens and paper and started drawing along with me. I hope you and your kids enjoy coloring it in, or even creating a drawing of your own garden.
Nothing takes us back to childhood quite like a spoonful of chocolate pudding. In celebration of National Chocolate Pudding Day, we’re sharing a classic recipe from Whipperberry that’s perfect to make from scratch!
