Books Make a Difference!

Today marks the beginning of a month-long program by BlogHer and to make a difference in children's lives.  Working together with First Book, a non-profit Head Start program, BlogHer and BookRenter (a company that rents textbooks) will donate 1 new book for every comment left in this thread at, up to 1,000 books.

Even if you aren't a blogger, you can sign up, leave your comment answering the question about books that made a difference in your life, and still help this wonderful program. :)

When I left my comment, I mentioned the book "Higglety Pigglety Pop" by Maurice Sendak.  This was the first book I ever really loved and boy, did I love that book.  For an entire year no one else could take it out of the school library because every time it was due to be returned I renewed it.  Which begs the question, why didn't my parents just get me my own copy??? GOOD QUESTION! (hi mom, love you! )  It also makes me wish I had a copy now, I'm feeling the need to read it again - it's probably been 37 years since I've seen it, let alone read it. Maybe Josh would like it. I mean, the shows he attached to and still loves are all about animals, Blue is a dog, and Little Bear, well, that's Maurice Sendak too so you never know...
