List up to 10  kids books that are on your shelf that you are surprised that have not been requested. Please tell us something about the book , or condition, age level, and if you are running a deal on them or not.  Please delete books as they get ordered rather than just crossing them off. Feel free to add new books as books are requested.

1. Disney's hunchback of Norte Dame hardcover popup. I would consider this book in gift giving condition.  I would say ages 4-6 would enjoy this book.

2. Down on the farm with Grover.  This book is so much fun! It was one of my girls favorites. It tells all about what it is like to work on a farm.  All the Seasame gang come and help Grover with the farm before his grandfather comes back. My girls enjoyed having this read to them 1st or 2nd grade. The reading level I would say is 2nd to 3rd due to how long it is.  It is a hardcover book

3. Gus and the Baby Ghost I love this story it is one of my favorites I just have 2 copies of it. This is a hardcover book all about Gus who takes care of a baby ghost and tries to keep him quiet when the musem is open.  2nd grade reading but kids love it much younger than that.  It does not have an ISBN number and I have not listed it  manually. So send me a pm if you want it.

4. Fun at camp.  This is a pretty easy reader 1st or 2nd grade reading level.  It is all about what kids do at camp and is a lot of fun. This is hardcover if my memory is right.

6. Molly's bad hair day(big comfy couch) This is 1st grade reading level is a hardcover and is about how Molly's doll does not want to brush her hair. It is a good book to show how important it is to take care of your self.

7.Patty save the day  Is really great book with wonderfull pictures and should be at the top of the list. I can not believe this book is still here. It is all about a prarie dog who tries to learn how to sing  but does not sing well.  She ends up saving her village though.  It is a great book about true tallents and perservence.  It is late 1stgrade reading  maybe even 2nd grade readinglevel.

9.Shelly's shell search this is a hard cover book. I would say 2nd grade reading level.  It is all about how Shelly the turtle does not like her shell and tries other things and decides that the best shell is her own. The illistrations are priceless in this book

10. Who girl with gun(an Annie Oakley story) This is a pretty easy reader that my daughter read to me and I enjoyed it as well. It is all about Annie oakley and what she did.  It is an exlibrary book but is in good shape.

This is a GREAT idea for a topic, Jean!  Unfortunately, the books I have that aren't moving are not children's books.  = )

I'm eager to see what people list...

Those are some great titles!  I have:

Jamberry (pb)

The Runaway Bunny (hc w/dj)

Why Mosquitos Buzz in People's Ears (hc Weekly Reader edition)

Berenstain's B Book (h/c)

Homer Price (pb aged)

Frog and Toad are Friends (pb)

and

My World Globe (pb)

 

I actually own copies of each of these books and have posted my "extras." So I guess I think if *I* like the book well enough to keep a copy for myself they should be popular with others. LOL!

Dare to Imagine a fiction book for middle schoolers about a girl who makes up a story for her sick sister, then becomes part of it.

The Sign of the Beaver   a Sonlight title that is a double for us.

Stone Fox  a Sonlight title, about a boy and his dog who race to win money to save his grandfather's farm.

The Boys Start the War  This is the first of a series about the Hatford boys and the Malloy girls.  They have fun-filled war of the wits!  My daughter loved this series when she was 8-9 YO.  

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory This is one of my all-time favorite books from childhood!  My grandmother had a copy on her bookshelf and I borrowed it to read.  Of course, I  have my own copy that I have read to my children!  This is a duplicate.

Ramona's World and Ramona Forever by Beverly Cleary.  She is a great author and my kids have loved every book she has written.

The Secret of Red Gate Farm Nancy Drew Mysteries #6 in hardcover.  My 10 year old daughter loves these!  Can't wait to see the movie!

The Wonders of Me from A to Z This is a hardcover book with photos of real children.  Some of the Letters it explains are Alive, Body, Emotions, Imagination, Moods, Quarrels, and Talents.  Of course there are lots more.  My kids have enjoyed it.

The Paint Box  A beautiful hardcover picture book about a girl who lived long ago in Venice.  Her Father was a great artist and she wants to be one also.  In those days girls didn't have such freedom.  She befriends a young slave boy who has the same dream and helps him escape.

Hope you see something you may like and visit my bookshelf!
