What to Do

Put pillows, stuffed animals, and books in the plastic pool. Encourage the children to relax and explore the books. Consider limiting the number of children in the pool to minimize behavior issues. For even more fun, on a rainy day, open a large golf umbrella and put books under it. Children can snuggle up with a friend and share a good book.
