With everyone going back to school over the next few days, now is a good time to connect with parents from your children’s school. Find out who has children in grades above your child and see if you can get their old books. There are also many book stores which will buy and resell used school books. Unless requested specifically there is no reason to buy the newer books. Growing up I used to enjoy discovering comments left for me from the previous owner. Turn it into a game for your child!
