“A house that has a library in it has a SOUL”….Plato: SpReAd the Love Children’s Book Challenge Revisited

Yesterday was March 31st, and it was a glorious day in my part of the upper Midwestern United States…approaching 60F (today it snowed!)  Weather aside, it was also the last day for me to capitalize on the Half Price Books Half Pint Library Book Drive (HPBHPL?!  Hardly an acronym that flows off the tongue is it?).  In the month of March, Half Price Books was matching all donations of new and gently used children’s books which will be distributed to qualifying local non-profit organizations this weekend.  Of course, never one to be too hasty, I let the entire month slip away from me, so MiniMe and I had to haul a** to bring our donations in yesterday afternoon.

Ready, set...DONATE!

Ready, set…DONATE! (she is her own stylist…I just man the iron!)

In addition to the books we featured here during the SpReAd the Love Challenge, Mini Me also cleaned out her bookshelves so that our total number of books donated was 24.  With Half Price Books matching us book for book, that means we helped to put 48 books into the hands of kids in our area.  Not a bad days work!

    MiniMe ROCKS and so does her mama!

      She was really stoked to do it ( I have to admit, the promise that she could be pictured in her glam shades and some lip stain was probably a factor 🙂 )

    So cute, your MiniMe. Glamour puss, with her shades. (Am now revising my mental picture of the MaxiMe including massive, sparkly shades and pink leggings!)

    MiniMe is really rocking. This year our grades 3-5 did a reading like a rock star. the teachers dress up like rock stars for the award day.

    60 degrees where, my co-worker was in Madison over the weekend and said 60 and NO snow. We had 43 F today but another snow storm Thursday night and Friday. We still got a lot on the ground.

      She is hilarious when she’s plugged into her iPod and just singing away with her ultra bling shades on!

      Ack! We’ve got almost nothing left on the ground, but the weather man is threatening…
