A Thank You to the East Bay Childrenâ€™s Book Project
Oakland Housing Authority
For low-income families, just making ends meet,
Free books for their children, are really a treat,
After four years and 20,000 books given,
A quest for new resources had to begin,
So sad that empty bookcase staring at me,
Only one book here, canâ€™t you see?
So to my keyboard I flew,
Found in that cyber world, a fairytale come true!
So close and so helpful, so organized and generous,
Itâ€™s great to have the EBCBP among us,
Times are desperate and streets can be vile,
But books can help children live life with a smile.
