Donations this week to our NICU babies include the following, plus I understand several of Angie's friends ordered books from our Usborne link to donate directly to the babies. I'll post pictures of those after I visit Angie. We will also be getting free books as hostess gifts from our Usborne link.
Angela Jenson donated these books. They will be headed to the NICU waiting room and also to a local teacher's classroom.
This second batch that Caitie sent over will go into packets for the NICU babies.
I appreciate every book that is donated. Some of the used books get donated to local classrooms, but all the books find a home, so thank you all for helping spread the love of literacy across our community.
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.
Another way to help our project is to purchase books from this Usborne link as we are currently using the hostess benefits to help buy books for the babies. You buy books that are delivered to your house for your children or grandchildren - or as baby shower gifts, and the hostess rewards help us get books for our NICU babies - a win win for all. Thanks to those of you who have already ordered; we are on our way to getting new books for the babies.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
