This is terrific! Good on you, Fern.

Is there a local place where we can buy these books in quantity, in case we had a favorite kid-based charity for the Holidays? You've got me all inspired.

If anyone is so inclined, Sleep Train's Dublin location will take delivery and responsibility for as many books as you choose to buy on the book's website (they are two bucks more from Amazon, but you can get free shipping > $25).

Their address is Sleep Train, 7916 Dublin Boulevard, Dublin, CA 94568. "Larry" is the manager to whom I spoke -- you might address it c/o him -- seems like a good guy.

Remember, "Not everyone can be a foster parent ... "

Such a lovely idea!

Let me know what quantity you are thinking about via and we can chat about which distribution method is best :)

Thanks for your interest in A Home for Charlie and thinking about giving to charity.

This is the perfect gift for a child for the holidays. I bought a couple copies for my grandchildren and a couple for our school library. It takes children on a journey of a shelter cat and shows that there is a home for everyone.
