BIG Book Bin Love and Giveaway!

I LOVE children's books. I 'm pretty sure that is a qualification to be an elementary school teacher. This is how I store my bazillion books. 

I know I am spoiled with my great shelves! I love having all of my books in individual bins by theme and month. It makes it really easy for me to plan. I just have to grab the bin and all of my books are right there. 

My biggest pet peeve about my books are the ones that don't fit in the bins. That is so annoying to me and makes my shelf look cluttered and unorganized. : (

Annoying right? And every time I pull out a bin all of the "un-bin" books fall over. Ugh.
 Well, my problem has been officially solved.

Steps to Literacy has redesigned their books bins to make them bigger and stronger! Look! Now even my nice big hardback books fit in my bin : )

I searched all through my collection to try and find a book that I couldn't fit in the bin. And, I couldn't find one! : )
LOOK! They can even hold 3 inch binders! 

Wait there's more...These books bins come in the CUTEST colors!! 

Can you tell that I am obsessed with them? 

Want to win a set of 20 Book Bins to use in your classroom? (Of course you do!)
Steps to Literacy is helping me give away 2 sets to my readers!

  6. My two most recent posts on my blog were about my love for children's books and for catalogieng them in a classroom library. The next step would be to find a way to organize them once they're in the classroom!

  7. These are great! I love that they are bigger now =)

  14. Sarah... Would you please email me a copy of the "All About Texas" book you made last year? I don't know why I didn't save a copy. Maybe I did, but it's burried somewhere that I can't find it. LOL!
    Also, do you have a copy of How to Make a Gingerbread Cowboy? We'd also LOVE a copy of that.
    There was also a very cute template you made for an armadillo.
    Can you tell we are getting ready to dive into our Texas Unit.
    Thanks so much! You are such a crafty gal.
