Read On, Children

Friday's paper had a fascinating article about a multi-millionaire who, while not being religious but anti-intermarriage, wants to spread amongst Jewish youngsters all over an interest in Judaism and a Jewish identity. 

His foundation mails to Jewish children a different book each month. This program is such a force that even out-of-print books are back in print. 

The article is an interesting read, piquing within myself memories of the books I read as a child, such as Sydney Taylor's All-of-a-Kind Family series, which was also on their mailing list. I'm now sentimentally sifting through Amazon to purchase copies for my bookshelf.
