Hi! Welcome to my website. The purpose of Kid’s Books Without Borders is to send books to families living overseas who have little or no access to bookstores or libraries with children’s books in English. My desire is to encourage these families by providing, free of charge, quality books for overseas families to read to their children and for their children to enjoy reading independently.
Many families write to me and say that one of the things they miss the most about living overseas is those weekly trips to the library. One woman told me her daughter read so much that the librarians at her local library knew her by name. My desire is to be that library away from home! One of my favorite activities to escape the stresses of daily life and get away from it all, is to curl up in a chair and get lost in a good book. My desire is to provide that same stress relief to overseas families.
Books are not only fun and relaxing; for growing children, they expand their vocabulary, their imaginations, and their minds and expose them to other worlds and places. Books can also share stories from the lives of great men and women who have gone before us.
In addition to providing books for your family, I will regularly post on my blog stories from my own life experience as a third culture kid and recommend books that I have read and loved or that my family has read together. I will also share information about my ministry and any exciting developments. Please feel free to post comments – I would enjoy your reactions, suggestions, stories, favorite books and thoughts. Thanks!
Final Note: I love waking up in the morning and checking my email to find a book request from yet another overseas family accompanied by a note telling me that they heard about me from a friend, overseas family, website, or blog. If you have received books from me, I erncourage you to spread the word so that others can benefit as well.
The more you read,
The more you’ll know,
The more you learn,
The more places you’ll go.
