November Reads

November 2011 Reads

Eliza read Clifford Runs to Story Time , a library book from school, all by herself!

Thrifty Finds: Children’s Book Collection

Sometimes thrifty finds seem good to be true. Also, sometimes they pop up in places you wouldn’t expect. It’s no secret that we love books around here. They’re taking over the house, really. We have way more books than bookshelf space. But this find was irresistible.
