These are the books that sit on our coffee table, which I bought from Good Will a few years ago. I read somewhere to place books throughout the house to get the kids interested in reading more, but since we spend most of our time in the family room, I put these books on the table for our summer reading. It's funny what the kids end up choosing. Last night our 15 year old son picked up The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh (the large blue one on the bottom left) and read some of it for quite a while. The little girls have been enoying the Shakespeare books ever since I got them last week.
Here is a list of the books starting from the bottom row:
The Grey Fairy Book by Andrew Lang I bought all 12 of them used. These are actually scattered all over the house.
Bird Songs: 250 North American Birds in Song I bought this one from Costco 8 years ago for $35.00
Aesop's Fables, Aesop's Fables for Children: Includes a Read-and-Listen CD and Aesop's Fables with an introduction by G.K. Chesterton
