"Los Libros para Los Bambinos!"
The smallest patients at Children's Mercy need your help!
When Mom and Dad are waiting for a premie baby to grow and mature
enough so that he or she can go home, Mom and Dad need a way to
show the little one they care. Studies have shown that
Mother's voice is the most settling sound for our smallest
patients. Therefore, we have a special program to present a book to
the parents of our patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
(NICU). This way Mom and Dad can read to the little one. It's
Books for Babies!
Currently, we have a source to furnish enough English books for our
families …however we have need for early child hood books for
Spanish speaking families.
Would you and your group be willing to do a drive for Spanish
language books? Books need to be story books similar to Dr. Seuss
series. They are available at most bookstores.
