Thanks to All from the NICU

Take a look at the books that have arrived for the NICU babies. These books make a difference in the lives of all those who use them. These donations help make a NICU parents life just a little easier.

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 at McKayDee Hospital gathered books for us and this stack is headed into a new teacher's classroom. Any books that can't be used in the NICU are passed along to teachers to help them build their classroom libraries, so feel free to send us used books as we will find them a good home to build the literacy of local school children. 

Child Life Services also sent this stack of books that are headed into the NICU.

This stack from Child Life Services is headed to the NICU waiting room. The books in that waiting room get a lot of use, so we are happy to have a few more for the children who visit that area.

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.
