Children's Book Charity Event and Giveaway
Did you read as a child? Do you buy books for your children/grandchildren? My answer is yes but I know that many would answer no to the above questions. Not because they don't want to but because they can't. There are so many children who don't have books and even when they go to school there are no books that are age appropriate or no books at all. Once a classroom of children was asked to bring in a book from home, 3 children brought the phone book because it was the only book they had in the house. This saddens me and because of that I have joined forces with some amazing authors and fellow bloggers in an effort to give more children the opportunity to read.
Please take a look at First Book
This is an organization that provides low income families and school systems with age appropriate books. They have provided more then 85 million free and low cost books to thousands of communities.
