Tell me something!

  • Hi, Sarah –
    I love your videos and while at home during Covid-19, I have been overhauling and better organizing my FVR library (new bind, sticker system, more books, etc.). I am wondering what books you have in your level 1 pink bin and also if you keep a master list of books and bin numbers that you would be willing to share? Thank you for your awesome videos and for inspiring me.
