For instance, I ran out of brightly colored cardstock that I use to make the inserts for the book packets explaining the importance of reading to your children. Today, I found a ream of just the paper I needed at a yard sale for a dollar.
Last week, we were getting low on board books, and not only did I find a few at good prices, my cute neighbor brought her two darling children over to each donate a Sandra Boynton book for the NICU babies. Thank you to Emily and her two littles.
1. Right now we are completely out of Spanish books. Children need to be read to in their home language. It helps if a child is first proficient in their first language before learning a second language. So we need Spanish books for babies.
2. We need hardback books. Each packet of books contains 2 hardback, 2 paperback, and 1 board book. I am completely out of hardback books.
3. We still have a few board books, but we can always use more.
If you'd like to help us with this project, you can bring new or gently used books to me or Angie, or you can use our Amazon link and they will ship the books you choose directly to me.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this project. Helping children become readers is so dear to my heart as I believe that knowledge and books save lives and bring a tremendous amount of enjoyment to our world.
