  1. Leave it to you to have exactly what I needed exactly when I needed it! I realize this is almost a year old...but I am just seeing it again now. And we have an 8 yr old who is dying for more books and going to the library 2-3 times a week and has been 'bored' of her selection for the past week. So...this should keep her busy. Thanks my friend.
