Does anyone know of a place or organization where our church could get some free or low cost reading materials? In order to involve the community in our kids summer program, we'll be doing a month long (2 day per week) VBS/reading program and we're looking for any help we can get in aquiring books or resources. Most of the kids will be coming form low-income families and we would like to ba able to give them books to keep.

Thank you so much for any help!

Dear Donielle,

I have alot of beginning readers, if you will email me privately, I will get your address and send you a box.

Most of my books are about animals and family themes. You can let me know what kind you would be looking for.

To God be the Glory,

For young children, kindergarten-first grade age, try starfall.com.  You can download and print easy books for free or order them for a minimal fee.
