The folks at the Community Media Workshop have news about a new / expanded program to give kids books to take home and have for themselves, something that as you may know many don't have:
First Book recently established a Chicagoland advisory board, which is
now reaching out to teachers and directors of early education and
afterschool programs -- along with teen groups, tutoring programs, and
ESL classes (some bilingual books are available) -- to participate in
the program. "
Check it out. Let us know if there are other good programs like this around.
