Isaac's Bookshelf is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization that was created in memory of our beautiful son, Isaac, to share the joy of reading with children in the hospital. Isaac passed away at five months of age due to complications with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and CHARGE Syndrome. Among all of Isaac's favorite activities, including playing his foot piano, holding hands, nibbling on his fingers, and snuggling, Isaac's absolute favorite pastime was reading. Isaac's two favorite books were Rex Wrecks It and Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons. Isaac’s Bookshelf rolls around the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sacred Heart Medical Center visiting patients. It is also serves as an exciting destination for patients who are working on improving their mobility after surgery. Every patient has the opportunity to pick a book from Isaac's Bookshelf to read in the hospital and then take home with them. We appreciate all donations in the form of new books, money gifts, or gift cards. Currently, our greatest need includes children's board books and children's picture books, however, we also accept chapter books for young readers up through teenagers. Isaac's Bookshelf is visited by patients ages 0-17. In order to help ensure the safety of the patients that visit Isaac's Bookshelf, all donated books must be new.
