We went to The Big Bad Wolf book sale last night at The World Trade Center. The book sale runs from February 22 to March 4, and is open 24 hours a day.
Admission is FREE and the crowds have significantly thinned when we went, which made for a comfortable shopping experience.
This year, I only bought this for myself — The Innovators by Walter Isaacson (₱290) and The Elephant and the Dragon by Robyn Meredith (₱350):
But I went crazy for my daughter since the BBW booksale is a great place to buy hard bound books for the Little ones. Here were my best picks for the price:
My daughter really loved this, The My Little Pony Metal Case Set (₱390)
The Paw Patrol Pup Pals Storybook and DVD (₱350)
Louise and Andie: The Art of Friendship by Kelly Light (₱230) and The Best Book of Fairy Tales by Miles Kelly (₱350). My brother also bought another book by Miles Kelly for Nursery Rhymes:
Bully: A Lift-the-Flap book illustrated by Naomi Tipping (₱190). Never too late to learn about bullying.
1001 Things to Find: Stage School and Cheeky Monkey (₱190 each)
The Hippo Magic’s Augmented Reality Books that cost ₱290 each. We got The Three Little Pigs, Velveteen Rabbit and Goldilocks. My brother got the Little Red Riding Hood and Counting Numbers.
Interesting concept and easy to read. Please note though that not all pages are interactive. You still need to read most of the pages to your toddler.
Don’t worry, there’s a lot of stock of these babies at the booksale. I don’t think you’ll really run out.
And some activity books ranging from ₱100 to ₱290 each:
The Now, No and Why Book by Tracey Corderoy cost ₱160 each. The sticker books were cheap at ₱100 to ₱120 each.
To be perfectly honest, I saw better finds last year than this year. They had a full row of Young Adult and Fiction books this year, but less of what interests me, Business & Economics and Cooking.
No matter, booksales are always a treat and the Big Bad Wolf is always an event. Regardless of your interests, you WILL still find some great steals that will be enough for the entire year.
We went last night, Monday, Feb 25, and there weren’t any lines anymore. I heard they’re restocking so there’s more to go around.
Here’s daughter and father going for their midnight snack. Have a good evening everyone!
