For those of you lucky fans attending tomorrow’s 2 p.m. game between the Pens and Habs in Consol, make sure to bring a contribution to the Children’s Book Collection. Everyone that brings a new or gently used children’s book to the Arena on Saturday will be entered into a drawing for autographed Penguin merchandise.
The Penguin Wives Association and Booster Club will be accepting the donations at three entrances. The official release can be viewed here. Saturday will also be Pittsburgh’s 200th straight home sellout. Quite an accomplishment!
There is an abundance of children’s books strewn throughout my house and if I had tickets I would certainly be willing to donate. However, just as we all have that hat we don’t wear to games for fear of having to launch it on the ice following a hat trick, there is one book I wouldn’t donate.
My favorite children’s book is Tikki Tikki Tembo. No chance Pens, that one is staying with me.
Feel free to leave your favorite children’s book in the Comments section.
