All four of our kids love to read, and a trip to the library is a special treat that they all appreciate. However, picking out books at the library is not the same as owning them, and so every birthday and Christmas each of our children get a book box filled with books on topics that interest them.
Of course, this means that we have a lot of books in the house, and it surely would be expensive if we had to pay full price for them. Thankfully our local thrift store has a pretty good selection of books, we’ve won several new books, and for everything else we use Better World Books. Better World Books are especially great for non-fiction books, reference books, and if you are looking for a specific book in a series.
Lately, our 11-year-old son has been attached to a Encyclopedia of Knowledge, which he has borrowed from our local library, and so I’ve decide that it is time to add a few new reference books to our collection. We have lots of non-fiction books, but one shelf is dedicated to reference books, and these often come in handy when the big boys do home work projects.

Our oldest son is a big reader, and once he starts a book, it does not take him long to finish it. Our middle son is crazy about sharks, and thanks to Better World Books he has quite the shark book collection. Our youngest son just learned how to read, and our baby girl cannot get enough of books, so the book boxes are a big hit around here, and I love seeing the kids go through the books in their boxes.
