Books for Kids

Last night I stumbled upon a blog that is right up my alley...it's called "Vintage Kids' Books My Kid Loves."

Scribbler blogs about - you guessed it - vintage books. I enjoyed reading one post after another, recognizing titles here and there - and then searching our library online to see if they carried any of the books I found intriguing. For the most part - I couldn't find the books. Sad.

So if you too are looking for some new, old books, to read to your kids - check out her blog...and then if something strikes your fancy, check your library (probably unsuccessful), then check eBay.com, check Amazon.com, check half.com and keep your eyes peeled at garage sales...those books are out there somewhere!

I'm always on the hunt for great children's books and have recently discovered Bayard and their series of StoryBoxBooks, AdventureBoxBooks and DiscoveryBoxBooks. There's lots going on too:
This Month Storybox has guest illustrator Helen Oxenbury fetured.
There's a Readathon happening in the Ireland region - http://discoveryboxbooks.com/readathon.php
There's a Ghost Drawing competition in AdventureBoxBooks assiciated with the Polka Theatre (http://www.adventureboxbooks.com/competition.php)
