  • Dr Jade Sierra Added Love your stories!!Trying to figure how to get books to you periodically. I live in Hot Springs Village, AR
  • Karen Added I love this story - thank you so much for adding such a positive message to my day!
  • CharMaine Added What an incredible woman Heidi is! Readers are leaders. I am a reader. I am in the middle of 3 very different books right now. Loved it from young on. Taught my children very early to be readers. And they are in their 40's (college degrees) and still avid read. It is a gift that will stay with you your entire life. Of course, both I and my kids have raised my grandchildren to be readers. It is the BEST thing you could ever do for a child. You can go places you never dreamed of going. And then, sometimes, you dream of going there. And you do! You develop vocabulary, critical thinking, sympathy and empathy. You gain wisdom. It is so important for developing your character into a well-balanced adult. Kids are graduating H.S. in Baltimore today and cannot read. Imagine the dismal future they have. Guns, drugs, promiscuity -- because they can't read. Not their fault. Gov-Ed union teachers did not do their job. They have robbed students of their future. The kids have no idea there is a world beyond their street corner. They don't know how to dream. Instead, they run the race in the Oppression Olympics. It's the 21st century and so many have bleak futures because they don't read. It is travesty.

    And this woman is a New Yorker! What a passion she has that is just breath-taking. Oh, how the Lord will richly bless her for what she is doing with her life for all the children that walk through her door. Just remarkable.

    I kept some of the books I acquired for my kids and grandkids. I just couldn't part with them. I took a bunch to the local library too. Those that are boxed and in my storage unit (out of state), I will be sending to her. There, with her, I KNOW they will be put to good use.

    Mel, thank you for posting this, you are awesome! What a guy. What a gal! Heidi Rocks!!
  • [email protected] Added When I was growing up it was JUST books and the radio. There was a little tiny house 1 block away on the corner and that was our library!! I think I took home every horse book (My Friend Flicka) etc and ever Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins and Hardy Boys books to read. On the radio I listened to The Lone Ranger, The Shadow Knows, Pecos Bill, on and on!! Because there was no television when I was growing up, everything was left to the mind--to the imagination, and I wouldn't have traded that for anything. You had to imagine what the speaker looked like and in books you had to imagine what the characters looked like. I believe, in a large way, that television has ruined the youth of today!! Hooray for this wonderful woman and her '40-Acre Wood' bookstore!!
  • Kathy Added God Bless that lady for doing such a wonderful job especially with young children. Starting them to read books at a young age is the key to success as they grow and learn.

  • Patricia Yager Delagrange Added What a fabulous story. I have loved reading books since I was probably 6 or 7 years old and now I'm an author. I completely understand where Heidi is coming from. Books are important.
  • Vince B. Added Reading at a young age is so important to development. This lady has a calling and Bless her for encouraging children to explore.
  • Pete McHugh, Hampton, VA Added What a great gift this lady is!!!!!
