A Cash Donation to Our NICU

Recently, a kind couple from the NICU gave $100 for us to buy books. I have a teacher friend who let me order the books from her Scholastic book order. She even gave us the bonuses generated by our order to get more books.

With the $100, we were able to purchase 88 books for the NICU.

Most of the books were only $1, but a few were $2, $3, or $5 combined with our free bonuses, these are the books we were able to purchase with this generous gift. 

 Yes, there are a few Don and Audrey Wood books and the must have Eric Carle.

One of Angie's coworkers sent these books. We currently need board books, so I was happy she sent these.

Angie went through her books at home as she was getting low on shelf space, and sent these beauties to help fill packets. Used books in like new condition are wonderful additions to our project. 

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.
