Store Description

Tales from the Past is run by a book reader and book nut. I specialize primarily in Children's out-of-print Picture Books, though as a reader in many genres, I will be adding all sorts of other terrific books. I do believe in the power and necessity of reading, not to mention the many worlds both children and adults can experience and enjoy! "If you read you can succeed" and have fun doing it!
