PLEASE HELP OUR HOLIDAY GIFT PROGRAM!
For the last 13 years, with the help or donors and volunteers we have given Hoopoe Books in English and Spanish-English bilingual editions as Holiday Gifts for young children in shelters and in schools serving at-risk children throughout the country.
Too many children in the U.S. will go without a Holiday Gift this holiday season.
With your help we can make that number at least a few thousand less, providing as many children we can with a book of their own – and one from a part of the world that is often misunderstood. Each story can show these children and their families something of what we have in common and can learn from each other.
Our goal is to provide at least 10,000 children with books of their own this Holiday Season! To do this, we need to raise $10,000 more….
Holiday Gift Packing Events
Amazing what a group of neighborhood kids can do when they get together! Over two weekends, these kids assembled 2662 Home Literacy Kits – each kit containing a book, an audio CD and a 'Read Together' newsletter for parents and caregivers. These kits will be donated to economically disadvantaged kids as a holiday gift.

Hoopoe Books included in Camp Fire
For several years now, Camp Fire Greater Long Beach has used Hoopoe Books at their WRAP after-school programs. This summer young students had a fun learning experience with two Hoopoe titles by Idries Shah: The Man with Bad Manners and Neem the Half-Boy.
