Melancholy's 28 children's books about money
This 28 children's books about money offer lots of enjoyment and exciting tales that are sure to please them. I have a great passion for books. A little after lunch, my little girl will often ask: "Mum, can you tell me a book?" because my eldest either snatches her own books or hears me out. Also, my girlfriends like to go to the bookstore and we are usually able to go on one journey a weeks, but often the books they take off the bookshelves are far from the kind of books or messages I want to have.
In an effort to find books of higher calibre, I started publishing books from the 100 Great Children's Books, 100 Years of the New York Publication Library. Like the name suggests, this prestigious book shows what New York's library staff consider to be the best children's books of the last 100 years.
