Read books for charity

Aug 27

Ohhhhh! Two of my favorite things… reading and doing something positive… have now been combined.

We Give Books was created by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation.1

Easy-peasy. You go to their website http://www.wegivebooks.org/ and you choose from one of the campaigns, sign up, read the FREE books online to yourself, to others, to anyone who will listen. Read them once, read them twice, read them a dozen times over. Each time you read a book, a book is donated to the campaign you chose. So simple, so thoughtful, so fun.

SO! What are your waiting for? Go read a couple books tonight… they are not difficult reads. A few of my favorites were School Days Around the World by Catherine E. Chambers, Ladybug Girl by Jacky Davis and David Soman, and Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney. The first is a compilation of stories depicting a typical day at school for 7 different children in 7 different countries. It was interesting to read how similar school is for children around the world and how it is different. The second was about a little girl who is all dressed up like a ladybug and is left to her own devices for entertainment… which she achieves with style. The last is a familiar story to many in a series of Llama Llama books. It is cute particularly when read out loud with animation. I read this one to everyone right before they went to bed…

I read each and every book offered so far at least once. And I even read aloud to teenagers and my dearest friend! =) Hahahaha… but they enjoyed it. I intend to read them again and again and read all the new ones (until they make me stop!) I think this is a great cause and want to be part of it! =) Join the fun… you know you want to!
