Several months ago, we asked our readers about their collections. Guess what? Many of you have terrific collections. Some of you are numismatists, or coin collectors. Others are bibliophiles, or book collectors. We received so many answers and photos that we became letter collectors! Here's what a few of you said:

"I like to collect roly poly's. I keep them in a big bottle. They grow really big because I feed them and give them lots of love." Kelsey Parkinson, age 4 Pleasanton, California

"I collect buttons and pins. I get them from places I go, and people give them to me. Some of them were my mom's and dad's when they were kids." Melissa (in the yellow pants) helps model the buttons. Andrea Mary Latshaw, age 5. Stoneham, Massachusetts
