Have you cleaned out Grandma’s closet lately? My grandmother was a teacher and a complete book lover. Books signed by the author or from Grandma’s vacation destinations were common Christmas present to her grandkids. Although my grandmother passed away in 2013, it was a joy to go through her extensive children’s book collection and know how she would appreciate that children will still be using her books. Only this time, the joy will go to children in Honduras.
The bulk of our donated books are in Spanish, but we also help supply bilingual schools with books in English or bilingual books. Often, bilingual schools are asked to help with the cost of supplying the books so that more of our donations can be most effectively used to support rural Honduran schools that cannot afford to pay.
