We Give Books Initiative

The Pearson Foundation visits Harry C. Sharp School to launch "We Give Books", 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

 

Harry C. Sharp students enjoyed preparing for the visit by listening to and reading Lady Bug Girl and the Bug Squad. During the visit students were regaled with a nice activity involving a presentation, a read through, and the school was awarded a lovely certificate which was graciously received by our principal, Mrs. Ruiz.

We Give Books is a free website that provides parents, caregivers, and
educators with immediate access to a growing digital collection of Penguin
Group's classic children's literature – stories that they can enjoy in the
classroom or at home to enhance early reading experiences. For every Penguin or
DK book read online at wegivebooks.org, the Pearson Foundation donates a book to
a child in partnership with one of the exemplary international, national, and
local literacy organizations that the We Give Books program helps to
support.
