Once upon a time I found a great old paperback book at the thrift store called Too Much Noise by Ann McGovern. This book was yellowed and brittle with age but the illustrations and repetition of the story are wonderful. The message is even better.
We have read this yellowed copy and it is starting to fall apart. Guess what!? I found a hardcover version at the same thrift store a couple of weeks ago!
I am thrilled because the pages are so vibrant. My son is quite pleased, but I think I might be a bit more excited about this upgrade.
