We have too many children's books and I'm not sure how to cull them? Obviously damaged books can go, but beyond that what do you do?
I love books and so do my children, but my ds is now 6 and somewhat moving away from picture books towards chapter books. My dd is 18 months and so she will still get use out of lots of the books. Should I cull books about diggers, planes & dump trucks (not that I have that many)? Or do I keep them in case she shows interest? Ironically I feel like I need more books as I don't have many 'girly' books at all and my dd loves butterflies and puppy dogs and flowers.

I haven't got rid of any of the kids books apart from ones that are completely broken.
Their bookshelf is completely overflowing so I should get to it at some point.
DS2 is still in the process of learning to read so I guess keeping the more basic books is worthwhile for now.
Op, in your circumstance I would hang on to all your books until your DD is older. I don't think it's a big deal that they are about trucks and the likes.

Id keep a few of the diggers etc type books for when your daughter gets older.
Any books that you don't want & are still in great condition you can always donate to your sons school library.

I recently did this without much success. I got rid of the ones that had never been read and the girls would never let me read it to them. I threw out broken books. I didn't get rid of that many lol
