Under the cover

Have you ever purchased a book for your child, then discovered it’s a book you already have, but with a different cover?

In an effort to save development costs, an increasing number of children’s publishers are pulling “oldies but goodies” out of the files. If you look closely, you might see that the front cover has been redesigned or the color palette has been refreshed, but the content hasn’t changed.

Because it’s true that “you can’t tell a book by the cover,” be sure to open the book before buying.
