Each year the National Association of Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrates the Week of the Young Child in April. This year I am looking to raise $500 to purchase books through Scholastics for every child from birth to 3rd grade in our community. Each month, Scholastics offers a $1 or $1.50 book. I will have three different events during the Week of the Young Child April 10th-16th where children can pick out their very own book to take home.
