At HearYourselfThink, we’re doing a science book drive for kids for Carl Sagan Day 2015!
You can be a part of it by sending your new or very gently used science-themed children’s books to:
The Hear Yourself Think Project
PO Box 116
Ambridge, PA 15003
Or order your books online and have them sent to us. Here are some sites I found that have a good selection of quality books.
- Max the space-traveling dog books and more!
- A good star-guide for $5.95!
- Beautifully illustrated natural science books.
- Great space books.
Books will be distributed by us in the community on Novemeber 7th at pop-up locations where we will spread the good word about Sagan Day (which is November 9th) and allow kids to pick their own books. Any books remaining or ones that arrive after the 7th will be donated to Reading is FUNdamental in Pittsburgh.
One of the greatest gifts adults can give — to their offspring and to their society — is to read to children.
RIF not only allows kids in need to select books of their very own but has teams of dedicated volunteers who read to children in their communities.
We think an important way to honor the life and legacy of Carl Sagan is to make sure that children are exposed to plenty of books that will spark their curiosity about the natural world and inspire a life-long love of science and discovery.
So don’t wait! Send your books today and help us spread the word far and wide about the #SaganDayBookDrive.
