Whenever we go to one Thrift Store in our town Mr. E always rushes to the back of the store to the bookshelves. He would spend all day there if I would let him. I have to limit him to one book. The books are only $1.00, so it is hard for me to say "no".
Lately while at Goodwill Mr. E has discovered their bookshelves and has been picking out $0.50 books. Once again, hard to say "no".
We have to stop on the book buying spree, he is proof of this...
Each shelf is crammed with books.
Even on the side of the bookshelf. These are the books that are too tall for the book shelf.
Pretty bad huh? I don't think we can fit even one more tiny paperback on these shelves!!!
Here are the books we have gotten at garage sales, thrift stores, and Goodwill in the past couple of months.
Yep, there are 40 books here...and then this beauty.
My Grandmother found this book for Mr. E at a yard sale...it is really old...has that old book smell. But this is such a great book...Mr. E loves it all ready.
Mr. E is almost four and he LOVES books!! I know it is hard to tell by looking at all these books, but he can spend hours looking through them and studying the pictures. I can't wait for him to learn how to read. It will change him forever! In a good way of course.
So do you or your kids like to read? I didn't start to enjoy reading until a couple of years ago when I discovered I could read things besides text books.
