Long before homeschooling was ever on my radar, it was important to me for books to be a central part of our home. I have such wonderful memories of my own mama reading to me when I was little, and I wanted the same for my children.
But books are expensive!
Despite our limited budget, we’ve been able to build a nice children’s library by buying books on sale at various places.
(This post contains affiliate links.)
In the past, we’ve bought books on clearance at Barnes & Noble with great success. Now that I’m an Usborne consultant, we can buy books at a discounted rate and there’s also the monthly specials (LOVE these!) and weekly internet specials.
Another way we’ve built a wonderful library is buying children’s books on sale through Amazon Prime.
I will readily admit that I am an avid Amazon shopper. Now, I’m not much of a shopper in general (it tends to make me discontent, so I steer clear), but Amazon Prime and I are BFFs.
While Amazon Prime is a yearly cost up-front, we more than get our money’s worth here at the Hill House.
The many, many reasons we use and love Amazon Prime is a post for another day, however. 🙂
Since I frequently browse through the sale books at Amazon, I thought it would be a shame not to share them with all of you!
So be on the lookout for weekly or bi-weekly posts here at Mama’s, where I’ll highlight cheap and discounted books on Amazon and at Usborne.
There’s such great sale books available, and I’m looking so forward to sharing them with you!
So let’s get started with this first batch from Amazon!
Note: If you need a few hands-on World War I and World War II resources, make sure you check out the books on sale at Usborne this week! There’s also a fun 1000 Sticker Summer Book and a few baby/toddler items!
