I'm always amazed at the wonderful, brand new books that I am able to check out at the library. Just last week, I picked up two novels for myself that had never been checked out before. Who needs Borders when you can get hot-off-the-press books to enjoy for free?
I also utilize the library to preview books that I might like to purchase for my kids or as gifts. My children recently enjoyed these two well written and beautifully illustrated books:
A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech
A funny story about an overly enthusiastic principal and a little girl who sets him straight!
An Egg Is Quiet by Dianna Aston
Perfect for any budding scientist
Both books come in hardcover editions and can be found for under $14.
