  • Alwys check out thrift stores and consignment shops etc. first. You' be AMAZED at what you find in PERFECT CONDITION for $.50-1.00 Also garage sales. On line you could try amazon they usually have pretty good prices.

  • try early moments they use to be scholastic they have Dr. Seuss books and other educational books at a reasonable price. You can pay a cheaper price than going into the bookstores. Some dollar tree stores sell children books with elmo, etc. Idk if there is one in your state.

  • What's wrong with the ones from Dollar General? I buy my daughter books all the time from various places but I refuse to spend $30 dollars on a book that she is going to color in.

  • I bought my daughter a lot of books from the local dollar store. So much cheaper than spending $5 per book at a bookstore or Amazon.
