“We Give Books is a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online.
We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others, providing a platform for caregivers and educators to inspire children to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers.
We Give Books also helps some of the world’s best, most inspiring, literacy organizations by spreading the word about their great work and by providing books to the young people these organizations support.” www.wegivebooks.org
Several classes at South Slope/ BCSD have or will be reading books from this site in the library. The images are excellent and classes have enjoyed being able to see the pictures in large format on the interactive whiteboard. Ask Divisions 6 and 7 about Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman, a new book in the library that we read online last week. Division 9 read Henry and the Valentine Surprise by Nancy Carlson.
