10 Minutes to a Nice and Neat Bookshelf

We have been reading to Maggie since she was a newborn and now that she is a toddler she loves books. She loves going over to her bookshelf and pulling books off and flipping through the pages. She loves rocking and reading before bedtime. She is quite the little reader and being an education major, I am just loving every minute of it. However, this can make for a very messy bookshelf.

I really try to praise her and make it so that she enjoys helping.

And in just ten minutes, you can have this:
