“Bess the Book Bus is a mobile literacy outreach dedicated to building home libraries for children and families that otherwise may not have the opportunity to own books.”
Last school year, I wrote a post about the impact of Bess the Book Bus on my school community in Greenville, Mississippi. Recently, there was an article written about the impact of the organization’s efforts:
“What you’ll see with kids a lot is how proud they are of [owning their own book]. They own it and they’re readers, and they’re defining themselves as readers.” -Jennifer Frances
Please vote! Winning this contest would mean a lot to me and to many children across the nation from Massachusetts to Mississippi!
*Another neat organization that partners with Bess The Book Bus is First Book. Check them out at http://www.firstbook.org/ !
