Do your kids have? How old are they?

I recently found out that a lot of the kids in my child's class have NONE at home, and it made me sad. I couldn't imagine not having any!

My oldest is five.  She has an entire drawer full.  I don't know exactly how many.  Between 20 and 30 I guess.

“Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”

hundreds when they were in Elementary. I am an avid reader. My children also love too. I know my 14 month old grand daughter has over 100 because I have given her many of them.

Heartbreaking that children do not have books.

I cannot count them all. It would be somewhere in the thousands.

My husband is a branch managing librarian, so many of the deleted books end up at our house.

I have no idea. They are 3 and 6 and they have a lot. We got this used bookstore in our mall. You can fill up a bag of books for like 3 dollars. They got a lot of kids books there you can fill the bag with. I go NUTS there lol
