Below are examples of hand written notes that the Women’s Storybook Project receives on an ongoing basis. These touching notes are a joy to all of those involved.
I don’t get to see my mom much so her reading to me means the world to me. I can’t wait until she sends me another book. Thank you for helping us to spend time together.
We know that reading is fundamental to learning and I think [this program] is a great way to keep mother and child connected during their separation.
I really enjoyed my mom’s book. I love her voice. She used to read to me all the time. —David (Child)
My grandson loves it. He immediately recognized his mothers voice on the tape. He sits very still while I turn the pages for him and we do not have any other distractions during this special time, i.e, no T.V. or anything or anyone else around. It is what we do in the mornings to begin our routine for the day. —Grandmother
To all who may concern, I just want you all to know, no amount of counseling or progressive steps can compare with this wonderful project. Just to see my grandchildren’s eyes light up, the smile on their faces, to hear mommy’s voice, reading the storybook. This book is so awesome. The whole project is so dynamic and I want you to know from my point of view, this is such a blessing for my grandchildren. If you can only imagine, how happy these two boys were to receive this gift. I commend all of you for taking the time to do this. They came to us like showers of blessings. My boys listen to Mommy’s voice every night before they go to bed. It gives them something to hold on to. Thank you. Thank you. —Grandmother
