Day 6: Read a book to my daughter/Donated a book to children

There is nothing I enjoy more than spending time with my daughter. I love talking to her, I love playing with her, and I love reading books to her. She doesn't fully grasp what I am reading yet, but she loves looking at pictures. Through numerous gifts from friends and family, my daughter already has a giant library from which she will be able to learn how to read. Having access to these books is something that I want her to really appreciate. A sad statistic I have learned about is that 1 in 3 children in the United States does not have a single book in their home, and thus has more of a struggle with learning to read. A friend recently told me about a website that helps to add books to children's home libraries both here and abroad. The We Give Books ( campaign allowed me to read a book to my daughter online. After completing the book, you are then given the option to donate a book FOR FREE to a child either here in the United States or abroad. If you have a child, niece/nephew, or if you want to just buzz through a book to donate, please go to that site so that more and more children worldwide will experience the joy of reading.
