Getting children books is like getting them shoes. They are eventually going to grow out of learning books, just as they would grow out of those little booties. At the same time it is important to have reading material around the house for little ones so they can learn and improve their reading skills. Here are three suggestions for saving money on books for children.
Buy books with multiple stories
I have found I can often get a book that has five or six stories for the price of one book as opposed to one story for the price of one book. I have even found over thirty stories and nursery rhymes in a $6 book. Books with more than one story gives my child variety to read, and a longer length of interest, without breaking the bank.
Buy bargain books
Many stores have bargain bins or shelves where books have been marked down. I have browsed these sections for crafting books for kids as well as story books. Most of these books are marked 25%- 50% off and can provide a child days of entertainment as well as skills and hobbies. These are also good places to look for holiday books as they go out of season.
Go to the library
Borrowing books is a great way to save money on that book that my little one wants to read, but that may not be a childhood favorite. I just need to be sure to turn them in on time so I don’t collect fines. Libraries sometimes have sales of old books as new books are brought in. I have found this is also a good way to add to my child’s home library.
