Children’s Book Donation Drive At Stallings Elementary May 11th-15th

It’s time to clean off your book shelves to donate gently used or new infant, toddler, and preschool books to benefit Raising A Reader®. Raising a Reader® is a national program that fosters read-aloud routines in the homes of low-income, low-literacy families.  Studies have shown that 60% of low-income families do not have a single book in the home. Raising a Reader® would love to put more books in the hands, homes, and hearts of children in our area!  We love reading and all children need to have access to age-appropriate books.  There will be a  “book drop box” located inside the school near the front office and at the book fair during the week of May 11-15, 2015.

                                           

Thank you for helping make it possible for all children to grow up with books

and a love of reading!
