This past weekend my wife did an amazing job getting herself and our three little children reading for summer. We always stock up on clothes throughout the summer at garage sales, so each time we change seasons, we have to do a lot of sifting through boxes of clothes. With three children under the age of 5 we are constantly cycling through clothes. After the weekend work we had 5 large garbage bags of clothes to take to Goodwill.
For the second straight day school was canceled because of the storms. After working in my classroom for a few hours I ran to Good will to drop off the clothes. While I was there I did what I do every time, I checked out the books. WOW! I hit the jackpot. I was able to find 16 quality books (15 for the class and 1 for myself).
Here is what I got:
2 Junie B. Jones books-Barbara Park
Shiloh-Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
The Cricket in Times Square-George Selden
James and The Giant Peach (2)-Roald Dahl
Dear Mr. Henshaw (2)-Beverly Cleary
Ramona Quimby, Age 8-Beverly Cleary
Artemis Fowl-Eoin Colfer
All of these amazing titles for $4.24!
