I think I already have the books that I really really want but the  The Red Book and The Dot do make me curious.

In case someone out there would like to give us a gift, the titles in bold letters are the ones that we already have. I am not a fan yet of Dr. Seuss. I want to collect his books but they are expensive in Booksale. I got most books for 50-80 bucks. Dr Seuss books are around 110-120 each. If you see a cheaper Green Eggs and Ham book, let me know!
