Free Books For Youth!

Yes, I thought that would get your attention. The books are indeed free - as long as you buy them and send them to:

T.K. Richardson - Partners In Print
P.O. Box 82432
Bakersfield, CA 93380

They are free for children in foster care.

I would challenge everyone to think back to that one special book (or books) that influenced your life in some positive way when you were just a kid – buy it and send it to Partners In Print. Maybe your special book will touch the life and heart of one of these children in foster care.

Hi Royce,
I will absolutely check this out! I am a big supporter of First Book ( but as foster care is an issue very close to my heart, I would love to spread the reading joy around and get some books to Partners In Print as well.

Hi Royce,
This is such a great idea to help spread literacy. It is a noble cause indeed. :)
