BB Harris Elementary Book Mobile

This summer, Read It Again has been helping BB Harris Elementary School in Duluth, GA with their book mobile project! Many of the kids' books we can't take or have no need for BB Harris Elementary School has been picking up to donate to kids in their district! Courtney Bernardo, a teacher at BB Harris, told me that because they are just starting out, this summer they will be working out of their cars and off of fold up tables. They hope by this time next year to have gathered enough data for a grant, so they can buy an actual book mobile! Whenever Ms. Bernardo and her team (pictured in purple) hand out a book, they take that child's name down. They plan on tracking those children's reading scores to show how reading over the summer improves their grades. BB Harris Elementary is a title one school, so many of the kids at Harris won't have access to books this summer. Ms. Bernardo plans on changing that. This is a super exciting project, which we are all very happy to be a part of. If you have children's books, or would like to make a monetary donation, we can put you in touch with Ms. Bernardo at BB Harris Elementary. 

The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from- Book Review

The Librarian of Basra is one of my all time favorite picture books. I cry every time I read it. Its a true story about a librarian in Iraq. Knowing war was fast approaching, Alia Muhammad Baker saved 30,000 books by hiding them with family and friends. The book is well written and although it discuses war, its not frighting.
