This is the coolest thing ever! Famous country singer and actress Dolly Parton offers free, brand new books to kids ages 0 to 5 years old. It's through her organization, Imagination Library.
Here is the link:
You simply go to the site, find your state and town to see if the local library participates in this project. Then you sign up with your info (it's legit, don't worry you can trust it). Then watch the free books roll in! You can't do this until after baby is born, but it's well worth putting on a note on the fridge to remind you to sign up for it. Every month we get a new book in the mail for Owen, addressed right to him. He loves it!
You'll also get books at the doctor for each well-visit. (well-visit: a term to describe those already scheduled appointments at the doctors for shots and growth chart checks, not when the kid is sick).
We love getting new books! Check it out!
