Let your child know how important books are to you by collecting a small library of your own. Check out book sales with your child. Libraries regularly have book sales of donated items, and prices are very affordable. Your town or city may have used book stores where paperback children’s books can be obtained for very little cost. Give your child his/her own shelf at home to keep his books on, and add to it when you can. Schools and civic organizations (like Association of Academic Women) often have used book sales; your school may also offer books for children at a reasonable price through book sale fliers. Don’t forget to check garage and rummage sales for used children’s books, too.
