You don't have to spend a lot of money to create an amazing classroom library for your students. There are many ways you can find engaging titles at a fraction of their retail price. In addition to visiting your local used book stores, thrift stores and library sales, Amazon is also a great place to check. When you find a book you want, check to see if it's available in paperback as they are usually much cheaper than hardcover ones. If you have a lot of paperback books in your class, you can repair, reinforce and protect them by putting book tape on the spine. This is a trick that many librarians use to make books last longer with heavy use. Below we have created a list of budget-friendly children's books available on Amazon with our suggested themes for teachers.
