Help make every season a happy season . . .
Give the Gift of Recreational Reading
A gift that lasts a lifetime

February 9, 2006
Every season can be (should be) a special gifting season! The IVE League started this unique program in the United States 1999, and is now continuing it into the third millennium.  We are asking you to help us give the love of reading--truly the gift of learning--to the kinds of children who need it most; "disposable" children in abuse and crisis interdiction centers, homeless shelters, and pre-foster placement centers. Across the United States, there are thousands of these facilities, places of shelter from a too-harsh world; each doing their best to provide food, shelter, and clothing to those who are temporarily unable to provide adequately for themselves. But many of them are sheltering children who have been torn from everything they know; who have become like Moses--strangers in a strange, and often confusing, world.  They have little, if anything, to call their own.  And we, as teachers, know that like most children, everywhere, they do have curious minds. They are eager to learn .

The IVE League, through the generosity of people throughout the United States, is maintaining a program to provide these children--and their families when appropriate--with colorful, high quality, easy to read books which they can call their own. These are the kinds of books that specialists in Early Childhood Development agree can motivate kids to want to read; to inspire them to the single habit that leads to life-long learning .

The Gift of Recreational Reading is a year-round program . Your contributions are welcome, and will be put to use at any time during the year. It is, of course, most active during the summer months and months of October through December--traditional American holiday and vacation seasons. Anywhere in the United States, we work through public agencies, private nonprofit organizations, and other approved crisis centers, to distribute the books to children in their areas.

You can become a part of the Gift of Learning program with a single tax deductible donation . . . the cost of a single book. . . as little as $6.95 (including any taxes and shipping charges). Of course we would hope you could afford more but the important thing is that you help. All you have to do is buy a book, making your selection from the abbreviated list below.* We handle distributing them to our pre-selected centers (like the Children's Receiving Home in Sacramento, California) or to any similar center--anywhere in the United States--which you might prefer to see receiving the gift. Just tell us in the "remarks" box on the payment screen where you would like them sent.

The centers are then asked, in turn, to give
individual books to individual children--books for them to keep as their very own.

You can order safely and securely online (see below), or you can order by mail by sending your donation or selection, along with cash, check, or money order to the following address:

Parents' Guides.

A four-book gift library of instructional games and activities for parents, teachers, or anyone involved in child care. These Parents' Guides are 48-page treasure chests to help parents (and others) help their children to read and learn the numbers, and provide educational activities for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Babies and Toddlers

This book provides parents and caregivers with lots of ideas to amuse and stimulate children from birth to two and a half. Activities are related to a child's stage of development, with fascinating information about each stage. There are simple activities to help very young children develop their basic skills and explore their environment, practical advice to limit the damage of "messy play", and things to do to keep small children happy on journeys - or when their caregivers are busy. ("This user-friendly guide will prove indispensable for any parent wanting to encourage their child's development." Practical Parenting)
