In preparation for the girls' arrival, we decided we'd better drag out the boxes of children's books that we have collected over the years to see what exact books (and how many) we actually had. We have both been fans of children's books our whole lives and both of us even saved books from our childhood. Since Matt has been working at the library, our collection has multiplied with books from the "free" cart (books that the library has withdrawn due to minor damage). It was fun to find old favorites like "Little Critter" and "Berenstein Bears" as well as classics like "Cat in the Hat" and "The Tawny Scrawny Lion". As you can see, we have quite a collection, but if there is anything we will spoil our girls with, it will be books because in the infamous words of John Morley, "If you want to be a leader, you gotta be a reader."
