You Get What you Pay For

Here’s something to smile about.  (At least it made my day!)  Last week we had a book fair–the first in several years–and several children literally brought their piggy banks in from home, emptying the contents to buy a coveted book, or to purchase a book as a gift for a sibling.  In these days of Cyber Monday deals and online shopping it was refreshing to see children meticulously counting out pennies (lots of pennies!) to buy books.  My guess is that those books will be treasured a bit more than other items simply because of the piggy bank factor.

More on the fair in another post soon…
