I raided a few second-hand stores for books and clothes. I found such
gems! I’m half-tempted to just keep them at *my* place instead of
giving them to J. After all, J will only get to read them every other
week, and I wouldn’t mind having them handy all the time. I bought
only books that *I* loved then and will love even now. W is new to all
of the books, although he had heard of Shel Silverstein before. We’ll
have such fun reading, and may end up going through all the books
ourselves before J gets a chance to!
I am on the lookout for more volumes of The Book of Knowledge, a
children’s encyclopedia introduced to me by Simon’s dad. I think it’s
amazing. Between that and Childcraft, I’ll probably eventually put
together a library of entertainingly educational books for kids (and
the grown-ups who drag kids along so that the grown-ups have an excuse
to read the books too).
That and a science museum, and a puzzle collection… =)

I feel much better now after a terrific book raid and a great workout
at krav maga. =)
