Summer Book Sale

Our library is having a GREAT summer book sale! They always have such great titles from many of our favorite authors too. I love to read, and am so happy that my kids enjoy books as much as I do. Children's literature is something I am so passionate about - the living books, the classics, beautiful illustrations - so whenever I can find a great deal it's a field day for me!

Here are some of our awesome finds! :

We love Eric Carle! I haven't met a kid who doesn't love Brown Bear, Brown Bear, The Very Hungry Caterpillar..and now we've added The Very Quiet Cricket to our collection!

The Tale of Benjamin Bunny by Beatrix Potter, British author who also created Peter Rabbit

A Ready-to-Read book retelling the Old Testament Story of the Queen of Sheba's visit with Solomon

Oh how I LOVE Shel Silverstein! He has always been a favorite of mine, and my face lit up when I spotted The Giving Tree! I remember being mesmerized by his poetry when my teacher used to read it to the class. So many great memories! I love reading Gavin and Haley books that I enjoyed so much when I was little

My absolute favorite poems from Shel Silverstein - Hug O' War and Listen to the Mustn'ts
