New Websites for Established Organizations
The Horn Book, is one of my favorite magazines. In fact, I have the new one floating around the house somewhere. Well, it has done a big revision to its website and now has all kinds of information. This could be a really useful site.
Books to Dreams was established back in 1996 and has just set up its website. The organization provides new and like new books for children in need. A few years ago I was contacted by a teacher in Hartford looking for good used books for her classroom. I contacted Books to Dreams, and the people there were happy to help the teacher out. Books can definitely provide comfort and escape for people who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances. And literacy can help them get out of those unfortunate circumstances. Books have a role to play in improving life for children.
