Tip for today: Shop for great used children's books at library sales. Plan to take some time, money, and a box. Look up the libraries in your area and ask when their book sales are scheduled. Often, they will also keep a cart or a room in which they will keep the books until the sale. I have found that if you just ask, they will let you in to see the books and purchase any that you may find. My son came home a few weeks ago with a large stack of books that he purchased for only $5! Usually they will only charge 25 cents for paperbacks and $1 for hardbacks.
