Throughout the year, we regularly browse the Friends Bookstore at the Menlo Park Library. I'm frequently surprised by what great children's books we can buy for only a dollar or two. It's hard to leave empty handed.
Our son recently asked for books about Lightning McQueen and he was disappointed when we only found one at a local bookstore. I think he was hoping for an entire section devoted to Cars. The following week we lucked out and found three like-new Cars books at the Friends Bookstore (one book even came with a full set of stickers).
We won't be able to make it to the book sale this weekend. And I know we are missing out. I would have loved to have seen what books our son would have picked out as he filled up his $5 bag.
