When you were five did you love to read books before you were going to bed?
What about when you were nine…did you like reading books then?
How about when you were 13, did you appreciate a good chapter book?
I sure know I did. And a school of kids in Costa Rica are in need of the same fundamental nurturing. They need the ability to have books in their hands. To understand that reading IS important. Books build on ‘knowledge is power.’
My dear friend Beth Dove is volunteering for the Peace Corps in La Virgen, Costa Rica. One of her challenges is a school library project. To create a library where kids can be excited, rewarded with books, words and knowledge.
As luck has it, I’ll be headed down to Costa Rica in April. And have made it my personal goal to take Beth some books.
My goal is 100 books in Spanish. Books for children, ages 5-14. Anything helps. Books cost less than $1 on Amazon. Can you help put a book into someone’s hand?

If you are willing to take 5 minutes, spend a dollar or 3 and make a kids year.
