The Year at Maple Hill Farm
This is one of my favorite children's books. In fact, anything by authors Alice and Martin Provensen is worth its weight in gold. So, you can imagine how pleased I was to find a beautiful hardcover copy of this book at the library book sale yesterday afternoon for just fifty cents! I feel as though I've won the lottery!
Other finds included Eric Carl's Mister Seahorse, Marjorie Flack's Ping, A National Geographic Animals in Summer, and a solidly bound Corduroy by Don Freeman.
For me, I picked up some Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Hardy's, The Mayor of Casterbridge.
For less than $15.00, we came away with a big bag full of hardcover books and a big bag full of educational videos. The volunteers even gave each of the boys a lollipop on the way out the door. With sales like these, all I can say is... any Friend of the Library is a friend of mine!
I'm too busy reading today to write a worthy review. More to come...
