Most of us are book lovers. To this day, I love going to my local library. Finding that one book that you could read over and over. Having a book to call your own was exciting when I was younger. If I allowed myself, I could spend a small fortune on books now.
But not all kids have the ability to get to the library or own books. Imagine being a child plucked from the only home you've known and put into foster care. It's strange and I'm sure frightening. Many of these children have very few possessions with them when they're put into the social service whirlwind.
I'm involved in a group that has a mission to provide books to children in foster care. Please go look at our website A Heart for Books & Kids It's so easy to make a difference in a child's life. It doesn't have to be a huge number of books. Please consider becoming involved. We have information on the site to make it easy to join in. If you can't help out, I'm sure you know someone who can. Please forward the link to them.
