I spent far too much time looking on Etsy for the perfect stamp to mark the donated books as well as the ones that will remain in our collection. I had about 20 contenders, but I kept coming back to Magnolia Letter Arts. After I placed the order I learned the shop owner and her mom are both reading teachers. So cool.
I don't know about anyone else, but I was all about finding treasures/secrets/secret clubs as a kid. I can imagine in my mind's eye how fun it will be for the kids who pick one of our books off the shelf, to find this stamp on the inside cover:
I will bring the stamp and a stamp pad to each meeting and the girls can stamp their books if they wish. All our books donated to classroom libraries will be stamped. Sinclair school classroom library donations will be stamped along with a message "donated in honor of Terisa Billingsley."
I so wish I could share this idea with Terisa. I know she would giggle like a school girl about how cute and fun it will be for the kids to find inside.
