This will be our 6th year and we have greatly enjoyed seeing the students’ faces when they receive their book with their name in it. The teachers tell the students ahead of time and so they are ready when we get there. I think the page they seem to enjoy the most is the sign language and the longest word in the dictionary and want us to pronounce it for them. We have also started donating some to local senior centers, and they are taken almost as fast as I can bring them in. To me this is one of the most worthwhile projects any group could get involved with. The education of our young people is vital to the growth of a healthy nation.
