Among the Nicest Gifts
By Judy Crocker
Down the street, the painting job went smoothly, and there were loads of boxes arriving. Family friends came last weekend for a baby shower, and the crib had arrived on time.
The local members of Delta Kappa Gamma – Rho Chapter were especially pleased to add a valuable gift to the baby’s new room – a specially-selected book for the start of the baby’s library.
Delta Kappa Gamma is an international organization of women teachers with the Los Alamos chapter founded in 1952.
The organization’s fund-raising has supported the purchase of well-reviewed books for many years.
This year, an infant reading guide published by the American Library Association, highlighting the critical importance of developing children’s reading familiarity and skills, has been included with each book.
