The kids in Maria’s class, and all the fifth grade classes at her school, wrote us a note to thank us for their books. Each time I go in, they all are reading one of the new books, they are excited, they are interested, they are learning new things. We were able to clear out very old, tattered, outdated books off of shelves, and the teacher sent some of them home with students who may not have any books at home, all to make way for new books that classes for years and years will enjoy.
Loved these cute little notes, “We are excited to read them all,” one says. I say, go for it!
(Also, ‘YOLO!’ ; )
“Someday I’ll repay you guys for these beautiful books”
Sweet kids. Thank you for donating, it’s changing lives and stirring excitement, and it will for years to come.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, what a huge, life changing gift.
Amy, Maria and 100 fifth graders
