  1. What a wonderful organization! Books are so important. I’ve had a love of books since early childhood and I encourage my grandson now to love books. We read all the time. There’s really no excuse for illiteracy in this day and age. Anything is possible. Thank you for getting the word out. Peace.

  2. I love First Book. When I was a reporter several years ago, I covered a couple of reading organizations and I just love what they stand for. I wanted to start one in the community where I now live.

    • I had never heard of First Book until I started looking for charities for my theme. I love the idea of a Virtual Book Drive and will probably have one after this challenge.

  3. Awesome post Cheryl!! I will get to know more about this organisation, as I love the concept! Books can change lives 🙂

    Thank you for sharing such a worthy organisation!!

    Best of luck with rest of the challenge x

  4. My librarian friends told me recently that some new research shows that children who have books in the home, especially books of their own, are way ahead of kids who do not. I think this was regardless of how often these books were read. Just having books sparks some important brain development. Amazing.

    • That is amazing! I have heard that the more books you read the smarter you become. This is one of my favorite organizations. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.
