FREE books for kids!

Dolly Parton has a program that sends a FREE book a month to kids up until the age of 5. You can go here to see if it's available in your area. It wasn't in mine, but there are directions on there as to how you can get it started in your area.

Here are some quick facts about the program:
  • At the close of the year, 732 communities in 43 states, the District of Columbia, 6 Canadian
    provinces, and 1 Canadian territory participated in the program.
  • 420,000 children receive a book each month
  • In 2007, just under 4.5 million books were mailed, a 37% increase from 2006.
