HOW WE DID IT….We went to the library at least once a week. For fiction, we piled up the historical fictions and classics. As for non-fiction we were a lot more imaginative. We looked for ANY book in ANY subject with great pictures and/or a humorous story line and/or wonderful project ideas. We didn’t worry at all about the subject – we just looked for the best of the best of the non-fictions.
