Renae Salisbury and Tami Ewell believe the love of reading begins at birth. Their service project "Board Books for Babies" is in its second year.
Each baby gift includes a new board book and information on the benefits of reading to children. Gifts are wrapped in cellophane and ribbons before being delivered to babies at Riverton Hospital.
Teachers across Canyons and Jordan School District have taken up the call and gathered 94 board books this year. The teachers hope their gifts will give the babies a head start on reading when they start school.
A board book is printed on durable vinyl or cardboard so babies can chew on it without worry of swallowing bits of paper. If you are interested in donating new books or money to purchase books, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . Share the love of reading with a new baby.
