Hello, friends. I have to admit, I’m a little taken aback that it’s Friday already. This week has been a busy one, and I’m surprised to see that Friday is here already.
Nevertheless, Friday it is. My confession this week is part confession, part secret shopping tip:
I get some of the Toddler’s books from the $1 bin.
Specifically, I get them from the $1 bin at Target (oh, how I love Target!) Don’t get me wrong– we have numerous books on our shelves that are beautiful hardbound books. But I supplement that collection with “in the moment” texts from the $1 bin. These are books that are not necessarily ones that she’ll keep forever and ever, but capture her interest at this stage of her life.
In other words, Sesame Street books.
$1 each, folks. Which means that I can snag several and put them in her backpack as a nice surprise during our upcoming travel. Kids not Sesame Street fans? There are often others on colors, modes of transportation, or even rhyming. And for toddlers who can still be a little rough on their books, the board books are perfect.
My confession, and secret for inexpensive, colorful, purposeful toddler books.
Because really, who doesn’t need another excuse to visit Target?
