I class myself as a fairly savvy shopper, especially when it comes to books. But even though I keep a record of the books we have, I have found several times that we’ve ended up with duplicates.
This is obviously more of an issue when I’ve bought all the books (several times even when recording what I’ve already bought, I’ve not checked and bought duplicates – very careless!), but with children’s picture books there’s always the danger you end up with doubles. Especially when you get through so many, and are particular fans. My best friend/N’s godmother is a big book fan as well, so gets him tokens instead to avoid the issue.
But we’ve managed to accumulate a few duplicates which I’ve managed to keep away from N’s grubby mitts, and have decided to give them away on my blog. 3 are new, the other is a used book, but still in good readable condition.
The books are:
- The Tiger who came to Tea – Judith Kerr, real classic, one from my childhood
- The Gruffalo – Julia Donaldson, a modern classic, who doesn’t love the rhythmic prose in this book series
- Slowly, Slowly, Slowly said the Sloth – Eric Carle, I’d never come across this from The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s author, but we somehow ended up with 2 copies
- We’re going on a Bear Hunt – Michael Rosen & Helen Oxenbury, another classic from past years, great for acting out with the children.
