This is a great idea! Find some books in your home, go to the book store or your library (our library also has a section of books for sale for $1!). Give the gift of a book for someone to devour. You may not realize how much of a difference it can make!
I once was a Reading Specialist in an inner city school and when I talked to the kids about reading at home, almost every child said, "but I don't have any books at home." Talk about a heart breaker. While donations of money and food help feed the body (obviously crucial), a book feeds the soul and brain. Do your part and know you are helping children find their voice in a book!
