NICU Delivery

This is what 65 books look like all packaged up and ready to go to babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah.

Angela Jenson, one of Angie's coworkers, gave these books to the babies.

My dear friend, Michelle, brought 24 more books for the babies. 

Angie says it makes her happy to see the books being used in the NICU. The babies get to take five books home to start them on their journey as lifelong readers. We are making a difference.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed books. I appreciate those who give me good deals on books so that we can help even more babies.

If you'd like to contribute to our book drive for NICU babies, here is how you can help:

1. You can order books for your own children from our online Usborne book party and the proceeds will go to purchase books for the NICU. I've received over $350.00 in free books for the NICU from people buying books for their own families through this web link. Usborne is really good to their hostesses, and they have great board books for babies. Click on the link: Usborne book sale to benefit NICU The books you order will be shipped directly to your home. You can then give them to your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews. The free books from the hostess benefits go to the NICU. Remember to get some summer reading books for your family. 

2. We have set up a baby registry at with many books listed for the NICU babies. Some of these books only cost $2.50. Many of these are classics that all children should have. Click on this link if you'd like to help provide books for the NICU: Catherine Crosby Building Lifelong Readers Book Registry. If you order books for us, they will be shipped to me, and I will package and send them to the NICU. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
