April is Earth Month, friends! During the entire month of April, I'll be posting about different ways to love and respect your other mother, Momma Earth.
As the title suggests, one way to honor thy mother is to shop at your local used bookstore. In addition to saving a few trees, shopping at a used bookstore can be such a lovely experience. You can find rare, out-of-print books as well as little gems you don't find at Borders or Barnes and Noble.
When you're looking to pick up a classic for your next read, why not check your local used bookshop to see if they have it in stock!
Here are some treasures from one of our favorite local bookshops:
Max and Moritz (German tales of a pair of troublemakers) and a signed copy of Pig Pigger Piggest (a variation of the three little pigs classic)
One couple I used to babysit for in Switzerland had a copy of Max and Moritz from their childhood -- a true German-language classic!
Being a teacher and fan of children's literature, I am always on the lookout for new titles to share with my students. This version of The Three Little Pigs features Witch, Witcher, and Witchest instead of a big, bad wolf.
