A Halloween Treat

Recently my daughter introduced me to "We Give Books" This is a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don't have them, simply by reading online.
We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others, providing a platform for caregivers and educators to inspire children to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers.
We Give Books also helps some of the world's best, most inspiring, literacy organizations by spreading the word about their great work and by providing books to the young people these organizations support.

Read a Book  -  Choose from our growing library of great children's books

Choose a Campaign -  Choose one of our literacy partner campaigns to support with your reading

Share - The more you read, the more books we share with children who need them.

The first book we read was Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex. A parody of the children's all time favorite "Goodnight Moon", by Margaret Wise Brown. Both my girls knew it by heart from the time they could talk. This is so funny. I laughed reading it with Polly. It is so cleverly written and if you are familiar with the original "Goodnight Moon" book, you will surely be delighted, as we were.
