Used Children's Books


My family's children's book collection grew considerably recently due to a wonderful book sale at the library. They were selling the older books. The prices were great even if they were used books. Here were some of ones that we've enjoyed reading.

The Lima Bean Monster
by Dan Yaccarino (Author), Adam McCauley (Illustrator)
Any person that hasn't wanted to eat their veggies should read this book.

Bad Day at Riverbend
by Chris Van Allsburg
Simplicity and excellent storytelling by Allsburg.

Zoom!
by Robert Munsch (Author), Michael Martchenko (Illustrator)
Robert Munsch is always able to tickle the funny bone of children and adults. I wish I could have found "We Share Everything" at the book sale. The match of illustrator and author is well suited.

Verdi
by Janell Cannon
Detailed illustrations and story that make Verdi seem more like a person then a reptile.

Art Dog
by by Thacher Hurd
It's a cute spoof of crime fighting superhero if he was an art loving dog.


We filled a few grocery bags full of books and felt like pirates that had sailed the high seas and returned with the best booty!
