Have you heard about Dolly Parton's Imagination Library?
On Facebook the other day - someone mentioned this really awesome program that if your zip code qualifies - they send your child a book (for FREE) each month until they are 5. How awesome is that?
I'm sure it's been around for ages, but me being a soon to be first time mom, just found out about it and I think it's awesome.
I hope Kingston enjoys reading as much as his mama does!
I was able to search our zip code and fortunately we qualify to receive these books! I'm pretty sure it's based on low income areas - and since we live downtown we qualify. Unfortunately, I've had a bunch of friends who have't qualified because they live in better neighborhoods.
Take a few minutes and see if you qualify.
There's not much better than books - especially if they are free!
PS - If I haven't talked you into it yet - take a look at this years book list:
