I've wrote on here before about Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. This is a program that sends FREE books once a month to children from birth to 5 years old. I signed Chloe Jo up a few months ago. Our librarian had said that there was a waiting list so I didn't expect CJ to get anything for a while. To our surprise, we received a book in December and we received one today for January.
I can't stress enough how important I believe reading to your children is. Not to mention these are FREE books. It takes little effort to sign a child up for this program if you are able to do it online. I had to go to our local library to sign CJ up because our library wasn't accepting online applicants. Even if you have to go to the library, it still is completely worth it. As long as we live in this town, CJ will continue to receive a book each month until she turns 5.
If you have children under the age of 5, please look into this program!
