Books With a Heart Operation Support Our Troops

I'm posting this from Live Journal. Please read. You'll be glad you did.

BOOKS WITH A HEART OPERATION SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

We are excited to announce a brand-new Children's Books program connected with the national organization, OPERATION SUPPORT OUR TROOPS. Operation Support Our Troops helps those in the Air Force, the Army, the Navy and everyone who falls under the catagory of troops ;-)

Well~~~ The program is called BOOKS WITH A HEART. We are beginning it in the spirit of the Holiday Season, BUT the program will hopefully continue year round.The goal of the program is to send children's books to our deployed troops who are also Moms and Dads.They read the book aloud. They are recorded on a DVD, and the book is then sent back to their child with the DVD.

The child then watches the DVD recording of their Dad or Mom reading their book to them, as they hold the book in their hands, and turn the pages. It is fantastic! It puts Storytime back as a reality. Why? Because even though the reality is that parent and child are separated by space. . .With Storytime- they are together in time!

Please consider supporting this endeavor.

Send a copy of a children's book that you have written or that you purchase for donation to:
