Looking for deals on usborne books, dk books, priddy books, books,  just about any book dealing with super heros, early reader or early chapter books ... honestly any deal on kids books draws me in... I can't pass any of the deals in the book bazaar that mention children's books without checking out the shelf LOL

We are also looking for The Sneeches by Dr. Seuss...but we've got that one on our wish list... I didn't think it would be  hard to find but it's proven quite elusive so far :(

    One down...one on my wishlist!

    I'm looking for 2 books by Allison Barrows: The Artist's Model and The Artist's Friends.  They're about an artist dad who introduces his daughter to the world of art, using her as his model and introducing her to some other artist friends of his.  Fun little books we saw at the library a long time ago, but I can't find them anywhere now.
