Morning. I Need Coffee

July 29, 2007

Good morning everyone! Are you awake? Don’t worry, neither am I. 😀

Well, here we are. It’s 5:00 in the morning and we’re on the last leg of our blog-a-thon trip. How many of you were with us most of the time? Some of the time? Several hours? A few minutes? Regardless of how long you were around, we would like to thank you for sticking it out with us. We truly had a great time.

I didn’t get much sleep last night. I stayed up most of the 24 hours to supervise and make sure things ran smoothly. Which they did because we have the best bunch of caring and talented folks on the Internet!

It didn’t dawn (get it? Dawn??) on me until early this morning that I never told you about my first book experience. After all, the whole purpose behind blogging for 24 straight hours was to convince you about the importance of making books available to everyone.

Books and children go hand-in-hand. Books open up the imagination and allow children to exercise their creative minds. Books are a safe, fun and reliable make believe world for our children to run, jump and yell in with complete abandon. Books are a necessary component to help shape children into successful adults.

I remember having a whole slew of Little Golden Books. I remember reading “The Pokey Little Puppy” and “The Little Red Hen” (Who will help me plant this wheat? Not I, said the Dog. Not I, said the Duck. Not I, said the Cat.) I also read several Disney books – Snow White, Cinderella, Bambi and who can forget Grover’s “The Monster at the End of This Book.” (Oh, I’m so embarrassed!)

That was one of my all-time favorites and I remember sitting in an old-time, patchwork rocking chair and reading that story to my sister. I used those Little Golden Books to teach my sister to read. Can you imagine not having books to read? Can you imagine not being able to read? Can you imagine not having that First Book experience?

Time is running out – won’t you please pledge just $5.00 to help purchase a couple of books for a needy child, family and community? Low-income families need your generosity to help give their children a fighting chance to become successful human beings. Write Stuff cares about supplying books to our future generation, do you?

All sponsors who pledge $10.00 and over are eligible to receive a FREE e-book of the Write Stuff blog-a-thon entries. All sponsors are also eligible to win a special edition Write Stuff journal!
