On Saturday I did a quick run to the used book store because one of the books I wanted to use for preschool this week was not available at the library and I did not currently have a copy of it. Unfortunately, I still did not get a copy of that book, but I did find some other great deals. Our local used book store is McKays. In general I utilize the library and used book store for most of my reading.
In the kid’s section I found a Magic Tree House Research Guide Mummies and Pyramids.
I thought the girls would enjoy this since we just finished reading aloud The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. My youngest snatched it right up when I returned home yesterday.
For my preschool class I discovered DK Eyewitness Explorers Seashore and Commotion in the Ocean. The Eyewitness book has lots of nice clear photos to share with the class while the Commotion book is filled with cute poems about different types of sea life. The Commotion book is more about fun than relaying too much information. Along with the books I already have, I think I have an abundance of books to share this week with my class.
For myself, I was very fortunate to find a book in the free book bin out front. It is a devotional, called Streams in the Desert by L.B. Cowman and editied by James Reimann. I read a devotional from our church each evening, so I am hoping to add this one in at the beginning of each day.
Have you had luck lately at your local used book store?
