“Fun is better than winning.”  –Bernie De Koven


You already know fun is better than winning. (But you can help grownups remember.) Check out the books below. Share them with your friends. Read them to your parents. We’ll be adding lots of fun stuff to this page to help you help others learn about the power of giving. Who knows? You could become a Super Giver! (cape and super powers included) It’s always more fun to share with friends. Help them become Super Givers too! Got ideas? Send them to us at sharing@oneworldheartproject.org.
