My kids and their books:

I love bookstores. It doesn't matter if it's a national chair or a mom and pop (those I do love more, though). I hope that there is a whole category of my girls' childhood memory that holds the hours we spend in bookstores. 

I had a short moment of envy when we were in this particular bookstore because I wanted to purchase every single children's book there for my kids library, but obviously do not have the means to do that.  Short after, I soon realized that my girls already  have a good portion of the books from our many "you can pick out one book to purchase" trips. I also thought about how beautiful these books on these shelves are with their nice clean covers and fresh spines that aren't yet worn, but there's something to be said about our books at home. They show that they have been held, read, played with, read again many of times and there is a beauty just as beautiful to the worn, tattered books in my girls library.
