50th Question from the Idea Jar!

More Ideas from the Children's Room...

48. More coloring pages or more coloring books.
Not a problem, I will make sure everything is re-stocked before the summer reading program.

49. 64 new crayola crayons. You're right, the crayons are shameful! I will replace them ASAP.

50. Chronicles of Narnia series. Please do this I am 1/4 of the way through the first book. The library does own all of the books in the Narnia series. If you don't see the one you are looking for ask a librarian and they will reserve a copy for you.
