Michelle from Michelle Eastman Books runs a project every March to bring picture books to children with incarcerated parents or grandparents in Iowa.
You donate a book. The parent or g’parent reads it. A recording is sent along with the book for the child to enjoy.
When I decided to post my kids’ street art, I wanted to dedicate the first post to her very worthy project. The Picture Book Pass It On Logo is at the bottom of this post & will take you to all of the info.
These children worthy photos are from a housing project in Manitoba, Canada. They decorate a murky tunnel kids walk through daily.

A brilliant initiative and it’s great of you to share it Resa!
Thank you, Maciek!
Thank you for honoring my project with your post. The murals are amazing!
My pleasure, Michele! I’ve found good use for my children’s art now!
Thank you for sharing, Resa! Many amazing people in the world are doing a noble job of helping children in need. The job, that our government should be doing by default.
I was very moved when I read about the project. Thank you for liking it & your kind words.
Gov’t… don’t get me going! Although I’m giving our new young idealistic Prime Minister time.
I don’t know, I actually like him 🙂
Me, too! 🙂
Very thoughtful and kind of you Resa, most sensitive issue and a world wide problem. Good to know that are people out there who willing selflessly to help children in need. Thanks for sharing with us!
I like sharing something like this. It feels right. I’d like to reblog one of your fashion illustrations in the future.. on Art Gowns, of course. Do you allow reblogs?
You’re very special Resa, a lovely human being with a big bright heart!
Yes, it would be an honor to be reblogged by such a talented designer! Let me know which illustration you choose for the occasion 🙂
Much love and hugs to you and hey the mild weather heading your way!!!
I’ll pick a sketch in the next few weeks, once Mnemosyne dies down. I will let you know what I pick & when I will reblog! Thanks Eva! 🙂 Spring in 5 weeks. ⭐
Hurray, I can smell it! 🙂 xoxo
Wonderful post. Wonderful idea.
It’s amazing how when I look for good, it’s pretty easy to find!
Wonderful, Thank you for bringing this to my attention Resa. I would like to link in and see how I can help.
I think it’s pretty great. You just have to mail in a kid’s book to the address in Michele’s post! Cheers!!!
Fantastic idea and such delightful and cheerful art work, too. Great post, Resa.
Thanks, Jet! I decided to make it a kind of “kids’ month” on GlaM. I have a lot of street art for &/or by kids. Might put a couple more children’s charities on my side bar for a few weeks!
How cheerful it is! Great project and therapeutic!
Thank you! I am on about kids this month. I have a lot of street art that is really fab, and yet child-like at the same time. Power to us! Power to the children who will inherit what we leave behind.
