My child and I both love it! It's sturdy and my child loves pulling books out of it, and I don't have to worry about it tipping onto her or her climbing this shelf. The canvas is durable and can withstand quite a bit of weight from many board books. I'm glad I decided to spend some extra $ to get this one versus the bookcase with cheaper, plastic material. Wish there were more patterns available, but I'm happy with this neutral color!
