In classrooms across America, children celebrate their birthday. A common practice is for parents to provide cupcakes for this event.

Well - instead of a cupcake, why not encourage all parents to donate one book to a class or school library, something that will last.

Imagine - a school filled with (an example) 200 children - all having a birthday - and receiving 200 books per year. This is more than any school library budget could afford.

A note appended to each book could read: From the parents of _______.

A legacy passed from year to year to year.

A cupcake is indeed a present. But a book? It is a present children can open again and again.
