Book Organization

Once upon a time, I was a first grade teacher. 

Naturally, I collected A LOT of books... Can you believe that thousands of books were just sitting in plastic tubs in our garage?!  They were in desperate need of a little organization!  I was thrilled when I had a sweet friend inspire me with her book organization.  Thanks, Tiff, for this great idea!

This has been a long time coming, but I finally collected ALL of my books, cataloged them, and color coded them so that even Little Man can put them away.
