NOTE: This post was originally posted on my sister blog, Faith for the Littles. It was written by me. I'm copying it here for ease of reading moving forward. I can't believe we're almost to the end of this series! You will definitely want to subscribe so you don't miss next week's finale! Today's act of service is a win-win for everyone! We're cleaning out those bedrooms, letting your little one donate books, and blessing a dentist's office and the kiddos in the waiting room! Sounds good, right? As we closed down the end of a school year, we thought it would be the perfect time to do a deep cleaning of the bedrooms and our homeschool room. While I love picture books, we tend to end up with way more than we need. I actually found duplicates of several! Oops! I pulled out all of our books and then let Little Man select 5-10 that he might want to donate to the dentist's office. He chose several. However, some of them were just a little too "loved" to donate. Note to self: We really need to have more conversations with Baby Boy about how we treat books. Somewhat funny story... I tried calling our dentist (very last minute) to ask if they were even interested in having us donate books. One of the main streets in our city that has really terrible cell service. The receptionist kept saying she could barely hear me because I was cutting out. We showed up with the books and I think they were slightly confused. All in all, they appreciated what he was doing, which made him feel good about it. We've actually done this activity twice. I'd say both times went well. We donated a set last year to his pediatrician during our Fruits of the Spirit study. He gets so excited to see one of "his" books in the office. I'd do this act of service again. I think we should all donate books to doctors and dentists across our communities! Let's promote some early literacy while we're stuck in those waiting rooms! :) Follow us on Bloglovin and make sure you are here for our final post in the Teach Them to Serve series!
