top 5 for beginners - a suggestion

Barbara Mueller on mon 2 sep 02

Every year my husband and I make a donation to the library to buy books
on a subject of our choosing. (The library asked us to tell them how to
spend the money) So far we have done children's picture books,
children's art books, nature books, geology books, music books, books on
tape, and this year we will do pottery. With library's struggling all
across the United States I invite you to join us in helping the people
of your community have the opportunity to hold a book in their hands.

Remember when you will a little kid and you read under the covers with
your flash light?
