I am working on my book drive for Reading to Kids, and I am taking my time so I can collect the most books. I have three bags, ( one bag from my friend and children's author Benjamin Harper). 

I believe a book can transport a person to a far off place, especially for children who cannot go beyond those four walls. Children from troubled households sometimes feel as if their walls are closing in, and a book can tear down the walls and take them on an adventure of their wildest dreams.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”

My trainer Mike is helping me collect books, and he was kind enough to donate some books to the drive. I saw a Dr. Seuss book and started going on about Green Eggs And Ham.  I perused the books and wouldn't you know it there was a copy. As a child that was one of my favorite books, and I always wanted to eat Green Eggs and Ham. I will try not to keep it for myself. I am a self confessed kid at heart, but with an old soul.

One of my childhood favorites.

Grateful to Mike for helping collect books

Another favorite of mine is the Fire Cat, about a stray cat. I ordered some copies for the book drive.

Love and light to all
Keep reading, keep dreaming
