Some of our favorite rediscovered books are "What Makes a Rainbow" by Betty Schwartz, about a little bunny that discovers the colors of the rainbow by asking all his friends. As you turn each page, a color ribbon is added to the rainbow until it is complete at the end of the story.
The "Thank You God for..." series. Each books thanks God for family, friends, the animals, and the world we live in. They are very colorful and very simple for 1-2 year olds. You can tell that the edges are well worn on this book. It has been read a thousand times. (I couldn't find them new on Amazon.com. They must be out of print).
Here is Garrett reading one of the "Thank You God" books.Another favorite is Jamberry. A boy and a bear rhyme their way through all the berries. I still have most of this book memorized, "One berry, two berry, pick me a blueberry."
And Erin just loves this once hardcover collection of every fairy tale, nursery rhyme, fable, ever written. She's showing the story "Beauty and the Beast," one of her favorites.
Who knew that we would unpack a box of old books and spend an entire morning exploring and rediscovering them. Just goes to show you that if you can't buy new, stick it in a box for a year and it magically becomes new again.
