Children's author giving away books

DOWNEY - It's the perfect time of year for a mystery.Children's author Robin Borakove received an anonymous donation in the mail from a woman who claimed that she had lived in Downey for 60 years. She said it broke her heart to see young children at the libraries who still struggled to read. When she saw Robin's "Little Edwin's Triumph" site, she thought it would be nice to gift books instead of candy for Halloween. Robin's charming children's story told in rhyme teaches children that just because they're small doesn't mean they can't be superheroes. Little Edwin's Triumph, non-profit organization founded by Robin Borakove, gave away copies of the book to children Thursday at several schools in Downey. Books were also sold at the Harvest Festival being hosted by Unsworth Elementary, with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, as well as to charities that benefit autism.
