Regardless of how hard I work to organize them, we always seem to have extra books here and there throughout the house. I suspect it's because I am continually adding to them. Can you really ever have too many books in a home? I don't think so.
I would definitely say my favorite place to buy books is at my local thrift stores. I have found some real treasures there. And in spite of my quiet grumbles concerning the fact that many of them have raised their prices in this area, I still get them for a small percentage of their original cost. Can't complain about that (well, maybe a little;)
Being that we are electing our next President in just a few short weeks, I thought it would be appropriate to share the following book. It's written by Lynne Cheney (our current VP's wife) and is a wonderful patriotic book for children.
This book is beautifully illustrated, and provides a wealth of information concerning our great country. It's a great, big history lesson in and of itself. The section I highlighted below contains the letter F, which stands for our countries Flag. It shows how to properly fold a flag, as well as different ways the flag is flown (half-mast, ect.). And, of course, trivia concerning the flag.
I paid .99 cents for this book at the thrift store, but you can buy it here on Amazon.com or possibly Ebay. List price is $16.95
