Today’s Friday confession is about looting. As in,
I scored some serious loot this morning.
Despite the drizzly and once again chilly weather, I loaded up The Toddler, the stroller, and an armload of snacks this morning. We headed to our local library, and the children’s/teen book sale. Trying to navigate a stroller, even a small one, through the limited space in which the sale was held was no easy feat, but we all managed, and I came home victorious.
Several of these titles are classics that I came across in my time in the classroom. At one point, I had my own copies, but I gave many of my books to another teacher when I left the classroom several years ago. Time to restock! Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots? is new to me, but fits my cute-but-rough-and-tumble daughter perfectly. And if you haven’t read A Chair for My Mother, try it out. It’s tissue-worthy.
Isn’t Stellaluna a wonderful story? For those of you who read to your children at bedtime, this is a sweet bedtime story. Also, if you’re two, apparently At the Zoo is a must-read. The Toddler grabbed this one off the table, and it kept her entertained while I continued browsing.
16 books, for a grand total of $10 and the money goes back into our public library system.
Not bad for a Friday morning outing.
(And another confession? Husband just called to tell me he was coming home an hour early. Wonder if I can sneak out again to browse toddler-free…?)
