The wonder that is Twitter helped me stumble across this new promotion by Penguin Books: We Give Books
Essentially, if you read one of their on-line books, they will donate a free paper book to a non-profit literacy center. You read, they read, we all read – it’s all good!
You can choose which non-profit you want to support, including literacy efforts in America and around the world. I selected the United Through Reading program, which supports military families with books to encourage literacy. Next, you select the book you want to read. I selected The Little Engine That Could, one of my fav kidlit books of all time. You might want to use a large screen, as the words are a little small, but the pictures are true-to-life.
I think I can … I think I can … I think I can … help literacy!
Go forth and read!
