4 for 1! Kids/Teen Books! Order 1 and message me with your 3 freebies! (Will always be going on until I delete this post!!)

I also have the following books that I had put my name on the inside cover when I was younger, so I am offering one of these for free when you take advantage of my 4 for 1 deal!


059060404x The Baby Sitters Club: Friends Forever: The Move by AL Singer

0380709597 Ramona The Brave by Beverly Cleary

0440900155 Journey by Patricia MacLachlan

This book does NOT have my name on the inside cover, but it came with these stickers that make an animation that I put a few of the pages, they do not cover anything up, and they are quite small.

Entire bookshelf is children's.  I have mostly easy readers and books for the younger set.  Many of my books are in new or like-new condition and all are in very good shape.

2 for 1 for all paperback books on shelf.  Pair up with another paperback or you can pair up with a hardcover.

Special 3-for-1 deal on the Arthur step into reading books (count these as 1 book for the 2-for-1 deal) -  there are 3 on my shelf that are sticker books (you put the picture sticker near the word that it represents) - these stickers are partially used - the stickers are properly placed and the books are still in "pretty" condition - stickers are not peeling and the words are not covered up.  Some stickers are left in each book.  All stickers can be removed as well without tearing the page. These 3 books will count as 1 book so can be combined with another paperback or another hardcover.

I have other easy readers or thin picture books - since they're so light, I'll combine them into 3-for-1.

Thanks for looking.

Running a 3 for 1 on my children's paperback story and chapter books (Troll Homework Survival Guides are not included) through the end of July.

Also, order any children's hardback book and pick a free children's paperback.



I also have unpostable copies of

Fluffly's school bus adventure http://www.amazon.com/Fluffys-School-Adventure-Kate-McMullan/dp/0439206715 - Scholastic Reader Level 3 - completely readable, but bottom outer corner is a bit gnarled

Days with Frog and Toad http://www.amazon.com/Days-Frog-Toad-Arnold-Lobel/dp/0064440583 - An I Can Read Book Level 2 - back half of the top corner was the victim of an apple juice spill, completely readable (pages are not stuck together) just stained.

Will send one with any order.

ONLY 3 MORE SETS LEFT!                        Temporarily placed on vacation hold

The Olympics are just around the corner! How much do your kids --- or you! --- know about those that will be competing against the USA? Here is a simple way to find out more about these countries.

Send me a PM and respond to this post for a 3 for 1, 7 for 2, 11 for 3, or all 18 for 4 credits ! ! !

Welcome to My Country (series) is a full-color, 48-page hardbound set of books on various countries. Written on a 4th - 7th grade level with large type, this is an easy to digest way to discover the history and culture of a country.

I currently have the following countries available (I have several copies of each country):

Argentina, Cambodia, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Greece, Israel, Myanmar, New Zealand, Portugal, Thailand

Festivals of the World (series) is very similar to the first series, published by the same company, but focuses on their festivals and holidays and their cultures. These books are 32 pages in length, written on a 3 - 5th grade level, and are also full color hardbound books that are new and unused. I currently have several copies of these countries:

Canada, Czech Republic, Haiti,  Israel, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Turkey, Trinidad.

Send me a PM and respond to this post for a 3 for 1, 7 for 2, 11 for 3, or all 18 for 4 credits ! ! ! All you need to do is to order 1 ( or 2 or 3 or 4), and then tell me which freebies you would like.

These new books are selling on amazon.com for $24 - 26 each. These have NO markings, they are BRAND NEW, and you will enjoy learning from them. These are library bound books that will not wear out. Your public library has these VERY BOOKS on their shelves! Honest!

So get ready for the Olympics !  Send me a PM today !
