Thank you so much for posting this! I'll look forward to reading some of these books and buying a few more for Sophia. Although she already as several, there were quite a few new titles! Three cheers for the Library Queen! :)

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
