When one of my twins was still in a toddler bed, she told me that she wanted to have her own bedroom and knew just where it would be. Since we lived in a very tiny apartment, I was baffled until she took me into their bedroom, flung upon the closet door, and said, "Ta-da! My new room!" I was horrified by the idea at first, and then thought, "Well, why not?" There was room for her bed with a bookshelf at the foot of it. We took out all the clothes and the rod, hung a tapestry on the back wall and she had a cozy little private space. She had that "room" until she outgrew the toddler bed. At age 20, she still sometimes says what a wonderful bedroom it was and how much she missed it when she had to move back out into the main room. Meanwhile, her sister loved having the much larger space as her own.

I tried our local library. They have an older home therapy book by you, and according to the library catalog, it is shelved in the library system's Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library. I love libraries!
