One of my strongest memories of Christmas as a child was the unbelievable anticipation and excitement of unwrapping a brand new Enid Blyton Noddy book. Oh boy. How I loved that little guy and his friends.
Kids and books: they just go together, don’t they?
I’d love to pass on that excitement to another child (other than my own, obviously) so I’m donating books to the Salvation Army’s book appeal through the Sunshine Coast Libraries.
If you don’t live on the Sunshine Coast, there are other ways to get books to children. You could try these links:
Or you could connect with your local op shop, shelter or council to see what’s going on.
Christmas, at its best, is a joyous, imaginative, creative and inspiring time of year. My wish is for every child to receive the lifelong gift of reading.
