    Looks like our readers must have bought them out at the $5 price already!! LOL! It looks like the cheapest price is now $10 – click on the “More Buying Choices” section to see all books currently available, from all sellers. (often a seller other than Amazon is cheaper). Prices change on Amazon frequently throughout the day as people buy books and add their own books to sell. But at $10, this is still a great buy. This book changed our lives. And if you have free Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks, use those to lower your price!
