National Family Literacy Day, 2008
Robert Munsch remembered us with some of his small, purse size, kid size, take-anywhere size books. He sent us a boxful to give out along our route. (Back story here.)
We also gave out winter hats and pencils, erasers and wash-off tattoos, and some t-shirts we had left over from another event.
We handed them out wherever we met kids - at home or along the way. (This is a poor picture because both I and my camera had been outside in -23 cold for two hours. We were both a little shaky.)
Where kids weren't home, we packed little grab-bags...
... and slipped them through the mail-slot.
