Paiden ‘reads’ Each Peach Pear Plum.
One night after reading Each Peach Pear Plum to Paiden, she said she wanted to read it back to me. To my surprise, she MEMORIZED the whole book. Well, actually I wasn’t that surprised.

Amazon’s trade-in program is brilliant. Items exchanged are often re-sold, with Amazon taking a cut. The “gift card” is often redeemed for purchases greater than the value of the gift card, so Amazon makes money there too.
So 1 trade-in = 2 net-positive transactions for Amazon that otherwise may not have happened.
