Books for Babies! Stock the NICU

March 8-31, 2021

Together we can help the littlest warriors learn to recognize the voices of those who love them, through the power of storytelling!

"When our granddaughter was born at St Francis in Peoria, she was transferred to the NICU immediately. She was there 15 days. The nurses encouraged us to read to her, but there was only one book for the 60 room NICU at that time. We read that book to our granddaughter yet felt sad that we had the only book available. So, we want to supply books to the NICU in the hope that there will be at least one book per NICU room.” ~Rebecca & Jim

We’re partnering with Rebecca and Jim, and we’d like your help!


Now through March 31st, stop by Gingerbread House Toys and purchase a new book at checkout that will be donated to the NICU at Children’s Hospital of Illinois.  Our staff picked out just the right books for families to read to their newest little ones! The process is easy: 


  • When you go to check out, select a book. 
  • We’ll add the price of the book to your total. 
  • Then we’ll donate the book on your behalf. 


Sorry but the program isn’t accepting used books at this time.
