FOR THE LOVE OF STRANGERS by Jacqueline Horsfall was chosen as a top recommended book and is featured in Bearemy Book Club’s winter spotlight books.

If you aren't familiar with Bearamy Bear's Book Club, it's part of the Build-A-Bear Workshop, "a partnership with First Book®, a national literacy organization that provides new books to children from low-income families. Through the sale of a special bear, Read Teddy®, Build-A-Bear Workshop and First Book hope to put books into the hands of children who would otherwise not have them."

"With the purchase of each Read Teddy, Build-A-Bear Workshop® donates 50¢ to First Book® to provide new books to children from low-income families and 50¢ to the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to support other literacy and educational programs and the administrative expenses related to these programs."

Bearamy Bear's Book Club was started to encourage kids to read. It also gives kids a voice in reviewing and rating books. If you've had a chance to read this terrific book, please go the spotlight page to enter your own personal paw rating and leave your comments.
