Growing up did you have a favorite book? I am sure you did – I know I did – the Arthur book series. I still to this day remember reading those books over and over getting lost in the story and imagining my life as Arthur. It is probably the reason I wanted to open my own business or meet the President. Now imagine not having that experience as a child? The sad truth is there are a lot of kids (6 out of 10 families!), including in our city, that don’t have age appropriate books in their home. And children exposed to books at an early age have twice the vocabulary.

To help make sure more children have the wonderful experience of reading, please consider donating to my campaign AND please consider sharing this link with your own favorite book experience. All it takes is $15 and 5 new books will be purchased for kids who need them. And $50 would provide a new book for 20 families in our area!


So, let’s make a difference for children in neighborhoods throughout the area and give the gift of reading!
