Being a Mom to 11 year old twins makes for a zany, unpredictable, yet richly rewarding life. Thank goodness for my wonderfully supportive hubby who keeps me grounded. I'm a writer, an editor and an online media professional. I write about pretty much anything that inspires me. I enjoy interviewing interesting people and sharing my thoughts on my family's experiences at various events and activities. I might also share a favorite recipe or two, particularly if it's something I've thrown together that turns out to be yummy! Outside of contributing to, you can also find me at and over at my blog

We Give Books logo - FREE Online Books for Kids

Kids can read FREE books online and earn up to 500 FREE books for their school through the Read for My School Campaign!


Starting on February 14 and continuing through March 14, 2012, public elementary schools across the United States will be eligible to participate in an exciting reading challenge through We Give Books. They’re giving away 150,000 books to schools across the country.

Earning free books for your school is fun and easy!

1. Visit Starting on February 14 you’ll be able to sign up to read on behalf of the Read for My School campaign. You can practice reading on We Give Books beforehand to make sure that you’re ready to read and earn for your school when the campaign begins.

2. Enter your school name on the registration form so that We Give Books can track the number of books that your school earns. If you’re already a member of We Give Books, visit your member profile and enter your school name (Login > Settings > Country > State > School Name) before reading for the Read for My School campaign.

Note: school choices are on a drop down menu. It is helpful if you choose your state first so that you can choose the right school. Some schools are listed without the full school name so review your choices closely.

3. Choose a children’s book and read. Reading selections are appropriate through age 10. Click “Give a Book” at the end of the story to be counted toward your school’s reading total.

4. Spread the word: Encourage friends and family members to participate and earn even more books for your school!

We Give Books provides FREE online books for kids to read on an ongoing basis. Kids can choose a non-profit campaign from the list on the website to support with their reading. For each book a child reads, We Give Books will give a book to a specified campaign.
