I am so glad that Kib has a passion for reading. Whenever we go to the mall, he would ask me to drop by at the bookstore because he likes to read. He would sit at one corner and read. Sometimes he would ask me to buy a book, but whenever I said that I do not have enough money he would not insist.
To be frank, books are not cheap. I can only afford to buy brand new books when they are on sale. Most of the time I only buy second-hand books for him. I am so glad that there is The Learning Basket which sells quality second-hand books at an affordable price.
Originally, The Learning Basket is a blog written by one of its co-owners Mariel Uyquiengco. She writes about intentional parenting and providing meaningful activities for children to do at home. Eventually, The Learning Basket evolved into an online store, selling second-hand quality children's books. While most of the items they sell are pre-loved children's books, they also sell brand new hard-to-find classics too. The book selection from their store is not just any book; they make sure that these are highly-recommended children's books written by award-winning authors. Aside from books, parents can buy educational toys which promotes creativity, imagination, and open-ended learning. Thirdly, The Learning Basket also offers workshops and seminars for the family. They teach about preschool homeschool, positive discipline, reading, and early childhood development. Indeed, The Learning Basket is a parenting hub. They embrace the quote, 'You are your child's first and best teacher' by making the parents realize that children can learn a lot from them.
