I popped into our local Habitat for Humanity store after picking up the kids from kindy today and picked myself up a stash of books for $5. I brought some new book shelves the other week as the boys have run out of room in theirs. Now I have the fun of filling the new ones up.
Pretty much most of the books my children own are pre-loved. I love the thought that they have brought other children lots of pleasure, and now its my children's turn with them. Books are meant to be loved, handled and softened from plenty of reading. I can certainly say that about our collection!
