It's never too early to get kids interested in reading books. Today, one anonymous mom shared that she was trying to find good books for her toddler but being on a budget couldn't pay a lot of money. Here are some ideas of where can you get cheap books for toddlers.
- Your local library: Borrow tons of books—absolutely free! My library also has a ongoing book sale in the entrance-way where you can buy books (including children's books) for as little as 50 cents or 1 dollar.
- Garage/Yard sales: Not only can you find books for cheap here, but re-using other people's books is a great way to teach your kids about being green.
- Thrift stores: I love this idea from Trepsica: "Once a week my kids and I go to a thrift store, and take our old books and get 10 new ones. Then we never have a million books lying around, and we always have new stuff to read!"
- Dollar stores: Great books for—you guessed it!—only $1!
- Dolly Parton's Imagination Library: Children under the age of 5 in participating communities get a free brand new, age-appropriate book each month. (Thanks to mom2twobabies for this info!)
- Book Swap Web Sites: There are tons of Web sites that allow you to swap your books for others. Check out MakeUseOf.com's list of the 10 Best Web sites to Swap Books for ideas.
