Savers Haul

I mentioned previously that we had gone to Savers, and took a picture with my digital camera.  I usually take pictures with my iPod, but wanted to try the camera to see how the picture would come out:

Pretty good picture, eh?   I also took the picture with sunlight and took a much closer picture, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Here's what I got for a little over $7 -

Board books - "Dumpy and His Pals" by Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton, illustrated by Tony Walton.  Yes, Julie Andrews from "The Sound of Music" is one of the authors of this book!  This is a cute and simple story about several trucks in the neighborhood and how they help us.

"Where Is Baby's Belly Button?" by Karen Katz. We actually already had this lift the flap book but the baby had torn out all the little flaps in the book, so this one is in nice good condition and for $.69 we can start all over.

"Counting Kisses" by Karen Katz.  I enjoy the books by Karen Katz, they are cute and my son has enjoyed all the ones we've got so far.

Little Golden Books - "The Nutcracker," "Just A Bad Day," "Richard Scarry's Best Little Word Book Ever!," "Alvin and the Chipmunks - Alvin's Daydreams," and "Sesame Street Puppy Love."

I also found two Dr. Seuss books - "Dr. Seuss's ABC" and "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish."

Another of my favorite series of books includes "If You Give a Pig a Pancake" by Laura Numeroff.  These are great little cause and effect books.

The last book is called "The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear" by Don and Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood.  Sometimes I pick up a book with such pretty pictures inside, not too many words, and I just buy it for the pretty-ness of it.  Some children's books are just works of art and I enjoy having them in my home.  I think that it will not only instill a love of reading, but maybe also a love of art in my children.

Enjoy your day and your latest book!
