Must Read Monday- Imagination Library

Sometime in the last few months, I stopped doing my Must Read Monday posts and I decided this weekend that I should start them again!

Grace loves books, not that she has much of a choice in the matter with a librarian mom, but she often grabs a book and hands it to me. She certainly has her favorites and she loves discovering new books. Often when we get a new book, we read it 20 times a day for a week. While I am obviously a huge advocate of finding new books at the library, I found a way to get great new books that we get to keep!

If you want to get books to expand your child's library, check out Dolly Parton's Imagination Library!

Here's a little info about the program:
"In 1996, Dolly Parton launched an exciting new effort, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, to benefit the children of her home county in East Tennessee, USA. Dolly's vision was to foster a love of reading among her county’s preschool children and their families by providing them with the gift of a specially selected book each month. By mailing high quality, age-appropriate books directly to their homes, she wanted children to be excited about books and to feel the magic that books can create. Moreover, she could insure that every child would have books, regardless of their family’s income."

The program has since expanded to communities in the US, Canada, and the UK and it is open to children between the ages of 0 to 5. Every single month the child gets a book sent to them that is appropriate for their age level. The program is not available in all communities. The program is not available in Kansas City, but grandparents can sign their grandchildren up and so my parents are able to get Grace books in Wichita. She loves getting her new books each month and the quality is really impressive. She has gotten Clifford, Corduroy and Spot board books as well as many others.  Here's a few that she's received:
