Wendy (comment #21),
I absolutely LOVE your idea of collecting books and relating the service project to Cynthia Rylant's book Silver Packages. With such an emphasis on reading in my classroom, I think that there would be no more better gift for my students to give than the gift of books for children who have very few good books to read. We have been doing Holiday Hope Chests for a few years now. I think I may try out your idea next year! Perhaps we could even add one book to each Holiday Hope Chest.
Thanks so much for posting your idea. I hope you have a great holiday break!
