I am working on starting gathering things together for Christmas gifts for people and I was going to get some books for the children in my family.  There are two infants (any kind of book that can be read to them), a 2-3 yr old boy, a 3 yr old girl, a 6 yr old girl, a 6 yr old boy, 7 yr old boy,  an 8-9 yr old girl, a 9 yr old boy and 11 yr old girl.  I can also use any books in regards to container gardening, as I have found out that my dfil has gotten into doing that.

Hi Theresa,

I have quite a few nice kids books on my tower right now. If you want, have a look and ask me about any specifically and I'll let you know if their condition is A+ or not and try to give you an idea of the age appropriateness.

Good luck!

I have some board books &  a Thomas Kincade Childs Garden of Verses book that may be nice for the infant.  I don't have anything for the older children.  If you take a look feel free to PM me with questions about the condition of the book.  Thanks, Shayla

I have a book called Picture me Under the Christmas Tree.  It is brand new.  You place a picture in back and it shows through as parts of the story.  It is pretty neat.  I haven't listed it yet but if you are interested PM me.

I just added 4 Hardy Boy (graphic novel) books. They are in new condition...they were given to my son and are way too old for him.

I, also, just added Five Little Monkeys with Nothing To Do...it is in great condition.

I just added a book on George Washington & it is in great condition as well.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Offering a 2 for 1 on all children's books right now.

Hi Theresa,

  I have about 165 children's books listed.  If you look at my bookshelf & send me a list of what you're interested in, I'll let you know the conditions of them.  I give books as well to the children in my family so I know where you're coming from.  I'm also running a 3/1 special right now.

3/1 on my entire shelf (limit of 1 HB per order & does not include "boxing")!  I really need to clear some space!!  I have over 600 great books listed & I'm addicted to buying more but have nowhere to put them!!!

Post in the Book Bazaar, PM me also & PLEASE INCLUDE THE AUTHORS.  Actual orders take precedence over freebies (so you might want to include an alternate freebie) & all freebies will go to whoever requestedthem 1st.  I can make a trip to the P.O. every day this week if you'll keep me busy enough!!
