Winter provides a wonderful opportunity to curl up with a special child and read a book from the Shalom Readers booklist. Maddi's Fridge by Lois Brandt talks about friendship,family, poverty and keeping secrets. Check out other titles on the Central Plains website. Are the children in your congregation reading to earn a free book? For more information contact Joan Friesen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ellen Miller (email@example.com).
