Books have always been a big part of my life, and now I have the opportunity to make reading a big part of other children’s lives as well. By working with JWI, I can make the lives of children and adults just a little bit better.

When reading a good book, you feel like you are transported into another world; story world. I can transfer what is happening in the chapter to a movie playing in my head. For instance, if you are in a really bad situation but have a book with you, you can pick up the book and be transported into the story.

By donating to the Book by Book campaign, you can help me build a library so children can escape from their troubles, into the safety of a good book. Just like the saying, “A little goes a long way,” when you donate to my bat mitzvah project, you are helping the lives of hundreds just get a little bit better.
