Five in a Row, Poetry, Fairy Tales, and Literature (picture and chapter books) for Sale...

Below you will find our latest list of poetry and prose, including Five in a Row titles, as well as lovely picture and chapter books. Some of the books are ex-library and some are from a private collection. There are many classic and living books. Some are out of print. Most are duplicate copies from our personal library. Let me know if you need recommendations or have any questions. I've tried to include an abbreviated code on books I know are used in a particular program.

We are a smoke and pet free home. The prices do not reflect shipping. I accept PayPal and ship media mail within the U.S. Please use the contact form on the right side bar to send inquires and desired list.

Thanks so much for your consideration,
