Today's Scores

Duke has been on a Dr. Seuss kick for a couple months now. It started when we took him to see The Lorax on opening weekend and the weekend after that, one of his friends at school had a Dr. Seuss themed Birthday Party. He pretends he's the Once-ler and has almost memorized The Lorax. We've stocked up on books from Target - surprisingly only $5 each and borrowed the others from our local library. His Amazon.com wish list is full of Dr. Seuss. So imagine my luck when I came across these Dr. Seuss goodies at our favorite thrift store:

Horton Hears A Who Vinyl .95

Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are - This was .95 with the How The Grinch Stole Christmas Coloring Book

My husband and I are huge fans of print so coming across these treasures guarantees our house will be full of books for the kids for the next few generations.
