Beautiful Children's Books

There are books for children that you let them "love to death" like the Sandra Boynton board books my children carted around for a few years. At one point my husband and I could recite the words together. "Three Singing Pigs Say La-La-La!" This kind of book represents the vast majority of what we will offer on August 22-23 in the Children's and Young Adult Used Book Sale. These books will be plentiful and inexpensive, so your child will be able to carry them anywhere and you won't worry about replacement cost!

Then there are books that were originally created for children, but that you protect from contemporary children in order to preserve their value. On occasion, these treasures are donated. It is amazing
that they survive the donation bin, but so far we've been very lucky. A few of these higher-priced books will be offered in August as well. With the holidays not far off, these make excellent gifts for collectors, or even for older relatives for whom these books will bring back fond memories.

We'll look forward to seeing you in a few weeks! The prices will be the same as Children's prices during the Spring 09 Sale.

  • Hardbacks/Large Format (ex. Childrens Picture Books) $1.00 and up
  • Hardback/Medium Format (ex. Hardy Boys) $2.00 and up
  • Trade/Oversized Paperback (ex. Harry Potter, thick bedtime) $1.00 and up
  • Standard Small Paperback (ex. Babysitters Club, Boxcar Children) .50 and up
  • Book with 16 pages or less (ex. Toddlers Board Book) .50 and up

Some books regardless of size may be priced higher due to size, condition or collectible status. Priced as marked.
