Children's Village cookbooks for sale

If you are looking for a last minute Valentine's Day gift this year, look no further than the New Mexico State University Children's Village.

ks filled with recipes from the children of the NMSU Children's Village are available for $5.

"The cookbooks make good Valentine's gifts because they were made from the hearts and hands of children and their families," said Christina Rubin, a specialist with the College of Education.

NMSU's Children's Village, located in a section of Cervantes Village at the corner of Sam Steel Way and Williams Avenue, opened its doors in October 2003 and provides care to about 91 children, mostly the children of NMSU's nontraditional students.

The village was established to incorporate all child and family services available at NMSU including the pre-school programs that were part of the Dove Learning Center housed in the basement of O'Donnell Hall for many years. The village also strives to make childcare more available for students and to serve as an educational lab.

The cookbooks are available at the College of Education Dean's Office. For more information call (505) 646-5858.
