As the season of giving is reaching its peak, it’s important to remember that book donations are appreciated all year round and can truly impact a child’s life in a positive way.

Beginning this holiday season, The Children’s Book Review team has decided to select a different charity to donate books to each year. This year, as Luisa mentioned at the end of her The Giving Tree review, we chose the Pajama Program as the organization that we would donate books to, based on their worthy cause:

“The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need, many who are waiting and hoping to be adopted. … Many of them have been abused or abandoned, and have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them in at bedtime and read to them.”  ~ http://www.pajamaprogram.org
