    I love how you preface this article with the ‘I’m decluttering’ comment. Cracks me up! It is super easy to have, what looks like way too many books, but really…..is there such a thing?? This is a GREAT list and reading to kids is such a great way to get them thinking and improve their educational foundation and I think books should not count as ‘clutter’. We can have a spic and span house when they grow up, right? 🙂

      Haha! Well, books that are torn or that my children have outgrown are considered clutter in our house. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
