A Sacramento mom dishes on parenting, family and everything in between

Buy a book, support a local charity.

That's the crux of a fundraiser that begins today in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide.

The bookseller will be donating a percentage of all sales made today through Sunday to a Sacramento Children's Home "Reading to dogs" literacy program.

The program pairs children with calm, volunteer dogs who patiently listen as children read aloud to them, said Michael Kressner, the organization's spokesman.

Sacramento Children's Home programs serve 3,600 children and 2,200 families in the Greater Sacramento Area through emergency, educational and supplemental services.

Author Michael Milone will be reading his book "Nasha, The First Dog" at a special reading event at noon Saturday at the Barnes & Noble store located at Arden Fair mall.

To make a purchase that will help support the Children's Home, mention code 10041499 at checkout.
