Books are a GREAT investment in a child’s future! They learn the love of language, the TV is shut off and you have quality snuggle time as you and the little person on your lap enjoy the latest story.
How cool is it when you can get 40-50-60 new stories for FREE?
A great reason to NOT be on digest for a Freecycle loop is the fact that it helps you have that slight edge on the competition when you quickly respond to a post. It can almost be like a radio call in game – where you can win a big prize but you have to be caller #3, LOL! In this case, you have to be emailer #1 and polite enough to warrant their consideration. I ALWAYS end my note with “thank you for considering us…”
Today’s score was the lot of children’s books that you see pictured. We scored some Thomas the Train (her all time favorite!), Dora and Diego, Dr Seuss, Curious George, Shrek, and a whole series of Babybug – that we had never heard of. In addition to the pictured ones were about two dozen that we either already had, or they were baby picture books. Those went right into the Garage Sale stash, along with those of these that we read and choose not to add to our collection. (again, turning our stash into cash…)
Add these new books to the ones I am sure she will get from the family at her birthday party later this month and, when reading 2-3 books a night, we will be busy for two to three months! Yeah! This takes us through a busy summer where we might not always make it to our weekly run to the library.
