At the beginning of the summer I made it my mission to update Avery's book collection. I've been trying to find more in-depth story books for her, and also some of the Step-Into-Reading books for beginners. (If I'm being honest this "mission" was really just an excuse for me to hoard more used books from the thrift store...I mean, really, how can I not buy books that are only 50 cents?) Avery and I went every few weeks or so, and here are the treasures that we found...
Awesome, right?! We spent about $15 for all of them! However, the best 50 cent book we found all summer, BY FAR, was this one:
The Anne of Green Gables Storybook with pictures from the film! The ANNE OF GREEN GABLES STORYBOOK with PICTURES from the FILM! Can you hear me screaming? Because I'm fangirling so hard over this book. Erik and I had already started reading Anne of Green Gables to Avery when I found this at the thrift store, and it was so much easier for her to follow along with the little photos in the margins (this kid LOVES the films...LOVES THEM). I never pass up a copy of Anne of Green Gables.
And, of course, what would a trip to the thrift store be without a few books for myself? I mean, I am a professional used book collector at this point. So I can always find something that needs to be read.
