Our recent trip to New Mexico took us to schools on the Navajo Nation and in Albuquerque, where we are expanding our Read, Think, Share mentoring program, and our book and computer donations.

St. Michael High School students in St. Michaels, Arizona (the capital of the Navajo Nation). were thrilled that they could each take home a few books donated by Reader to Reader today. One student told me how excited she was to have something to read over the summer, since she loves reading and was almost out of things to read. A group of freshmen traded book recommendations and bargained with each other over who could borrow which book in what order. Another student was very excited to take home a beautiful book of photos from National Geographic. A student who just returned from a mission trip to the Philippines chose to take home "Mountains Beyond Mountains," about Dr. Paul Farmer's efforts to provide health care in Haiti.

We are so happy to be providing books through our DiscoverBooks program for HCS Head Start's "Dads Make a Difference" event and parade, in Holyoke, Massachusetts, again this year.
Dads, kids, and books -- what a great combination!
