Literary Touches to Themed Baskets
I recently agreed to co-chair a charity event -- the silent (bid it or buy it) auction of themed baskets during the Spring Style show of the Mercy Medical Center (Cedar Rapis, Iowa). My agenda was to include a literary component in every basket that I dealt with. For the most part I was pretty successful in that regard. My favorites include the Peter Rabbit Basket, Love of Oz, the Blueberry Blue Basket, the Ladybug Ladybug basket -- and many more. Click on the "preview" link and browse the collection. If you come to he browsing page and wish to see a larger image of the basket, just click the link for the basket.
Just one example of creating a literacy event at every opportunity -- building a Nation of Readers, One Reader at a Time.
