I'm a bookworm - I love reading. I had a collection of Bible Story books when I was in pre-school and when I was in elementary, my favorites were Sweet Valley High and Nancy Drew. Exposure to books when I was young contributed a lot to my love of reading.
Last night, while I was updating my Kindle Store, I decided to buy some books for Baby G at Amazon. I really want to expose her to books while she's still young but I can't buy books for her here because they are written in French and/or Arabic. Since we'll be visiting Philippines in June, I decided to buy just a few books then do the book shopping in the Philippines. (I'm already excited to visit the National Bookstore!!!)
With a budget of just $40, I started searching for board books in Amazon. Here are the books that I've chosen:
All these eight items total to just $35.62 with the following breakdown:
Subtotal of Items: $39.55
Shipping & Handling: $10.92
4-for-3 Promotion: -$3.93
Super Saver Discount: -$10.92
Total for this Order: $35.62
Because I chose to avail of the Free Super Saver Shipping, I have to wait for 5 days to a week for the books to arrive. But, awww... I can't wait!!! Right now, the only book I'm reading to Baby G is this book which was given to us by an officemate of Daddy G.
It's a flip-the-flap book and Baby G enjoys it. She sometimes gets so excited that she almost tore one of those flaps. Scotch tape time, mommy??? LOL!
Anyway, have you tried ordering books online, too? Can you suggest other baby books to me because I really find it hard to decide on these books just by reading their product descriptions. We could compare notes once Baby G's books arrive.
Thanks and have a great April ahead!
