I Love Books, Especially the Ones That Cost More Than $4.99

A colleague who is a children's librarian told me about something I'd never heard of which is evidently very common. Kids come in to pick up their prize book for summer reading. The kid shows the book they've selected to the mom for approval. The mom looks at the back to see the price. The mom rejects the book because it's not expensive enough. The kid has to select a book that passes some mom-approved value threshold.
