On May 19th, we held a book giveaway at Brookdale Elementary School in Macon, GA. All 401 students who attend Brookdale in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade chose five books to keep. It was truly like Christmas in May! Several students asked us when they needed to return the books to the school. Their eyes lit up as we told them that these books were their very own, to keep forever. Don’t let anyone tell you that kids don’t care about books anymore. These students couldn’t hide their delight and excitement from us. Several teachers even told us that, after their students came back to the classroom with their new books, that they couldn’t even get them to watch a movie because they were so engrossed in their new books! We saw children reading on the playground, in the hallways, and proudly carrying their new book bags home with them.
