Children's Books Needed

58º ~ cool breezes, all the windows open, A/C shut down!

Ok, I know that the fans of the Kangaroo are also fans of helping children in need, so here's one way to do that.

Erin Dionne, author of Notes from an Accidental Band Geek has a great project that needs new or gently used children's books (picture, easy readers, & chapter books).  Read all about the amazing gift her family made to the children and families of Rhode Island in the name of Dionne's grandmother.  I'm stunned.

The books will be used during supervised visits conducted by the Dept. of Children/Families of RI in a home that Dionne's family purchased and donated to be used in conjunction with the Providence Children's Museum, which also hosts supervised visits.


And what a great reason to go visit my local independent bookstore!
