Hands Up If You Want A Book
Reader to Reader’s WorldRead student group at Navajo Pine High School in Navajo, New Mexico, held a big book giveaway at Navajo Elementrary School.
Hundreds of kids were excited to get books that they could take home and keep.
The dedicated club members went from classroom to classroom giving away new children's books that were supplied by Reader to Reader. They also gave away books to kids eating their lunches in the cafeteria.
WorldRead clubs are Reader to Reader’s volunteer student organizations for both high school and college students. Participants read to children and give out hundreds of books donated by Reader to Reader. They also boost their own reading skills through a book discussion group, and work on other literacy projects that they design and implement.
