What’s the Book Bus? It’s a school bus that we – with your help – fill with children’s books! The books are then sorted and distributed to places that need them, like Springfield and Holyoke public schools and libraries, and Native American reservations.
We filled the Book Bus last year, will you help us fill it even more this year? It’s easy!
– Bring used or new children’s books to the Eric Carle Museum between 10 and noon on Saturday 9/12.
– Put them on the bus!
– Every kid that brings books gets free admission to the Carle that day!
To make it even more fun our friend Jarrett J. Krosoczka is celebrating his 30th(!) published book, It’s Tough to Lose Your Balloon. Meet Jarrett, get a book signed and even watch the new short film of his book Peanut Butter and Jellyfish. Jarrett’s appearance starts at 11 am.
Bring a book, a bag of books, bring a whole library – we want as many books as we can get! New, used, all are welcome.
A special thank you to WRSI and the The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
