Local first graders give books to young hospital patients

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX) - Miss. Hensley started a project during the spring semester to teach her first-grade students at Creekview Elementary about the gift of giving.

The class collected books to give to young patients checked into Baylor Scott & White Health in College Station.

On Friday, the kids presented those books to the pediatric team at the hospital and even talked about which books were their favorites.

"To be able to put those types of books in the hands of children that are ill or sad or here for not very comfortable reasons, it excited them very much," Hensley said.

The class was able to collect close to 200 books to donate to the hospital.
