  • I buy books and go to the libraries here in our city. I love to read to the girls, and they love reading to me. Reading is very fundamental, and you'll start to see high achievements from your child when you encourage them to read everyday. My 7 year old is a great reader. I really enjoy listening to her read books to me.

  • With things I fondly remember or reference books, I buy them. To try out new authors, I go to the library. If my daughter's really into a book, I'll then buy it. Also the used childrens' books for sale at the library are super cheap, so I'll risk them being duds.

  • I buy at thrift stores.. The new ones are usually bought by our families. The library is great for different books.

  • I buy them, but not usually new. I have a thrifstore here that sells kids books for 25 cents each, or I go on amazon occasionally. A lot of people have given me kids books, too.

  • Both. My son loves books almost as much as I do, so if he asks for one of those 3 dollar books from walmart I hardly ever turn him down.
