The title in the pile of book donations immediately caught my eye: “A Little Look at Bottoms.” Opening it up, I saw adorable pictures accompanied by humorous text: “Bumblebees have buzzy bottoms.” “Elephants have HUGE bottoms.” “Snails have slimy bottoms.” I laughed hard, and shared the pictures with others back in our donation room. It was a fun way to start our work day.
The thrift shop regularly receives wonderful book donations, and we have shelves upon shelves of books for our patrons to browse. Children’s books — many new, or like new! — are put out on low shelves so kids can look too. They are priced to sell, and we often get teachers stockpiling new selections for their classrooms every year.
