My sweet friend, Alysen, brought these board books over for the babies. I love board books for babies as they can take being handled by little hands.
Caitie, my daughter, brought this cute Mercer Mayer book.
Child Life Services also sent this stack of books that are headed into the NICU.
My friend, Michelle, sent these four books for the NICU babies. I love everything Kevin Henkes writes.
We recently had a book drive using the hostess gifts from Usborne. We were able to purchase 49 new books for the NICU babies. Usborne books are sturdy, priced well, and beautiful. Some of our friends bought books for the NICU from this party, so we got double blessed. We also had a couple of cash donations that were used to purchase some of these books.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
