“If Our Walls Could Talk” Series, object #5: These are part of the set of World Book Encyclopedias that we bought when our children were in grade school. These were the years before I went to law school, which I entered when our children were 9 and 12 years old. When our children were babies and later in grade school, I was mostly a stay-at-home mom. However, I held a few part-time jobs over these years, such as doing bookkeeping for a small business. After seeing what a wonderful learning tool the World Book Encyclopedias were for our children, my last part-time job before going to law school was selling them to other families in our community. When I see the encyclopedias on my office bookcase, I often think back on the memories of those precious early years at home with our children. Priceless!
