Magic of Storytelling campaign brings books to Douglas County
Thanks to the campaign called Magic of Storytelling, Bryant Elementary in Superior and Northwestern Elementary in Poplar received hundreds of new books on Wednesday.
Disney Publishing Worldwide provides book donations to the nonprofit organization First Book, where staff have ordered.
Brad Larrabee, Director of Northwestern, said: “With children surrounded by books and excited to read, before summer is a principal’s and a teacher’s dream. We are very happy to have this program for our children.
Northwestern’s books will stay in the library and give entire classes the chance to read the same story.
And at Bryant Elementary, Principal Matt Amerson said they have enough books to send one home with each student during summer vacation.
“We would prefer that they have access to the books all the time. The hope is that they will read them once or two or three times. And tell their friends about it, maybe even exchange books,” he said. he declares.
Both principals are grateful for the opportunity to share more love for reading with the students.
WDIO and Superior Choice Credit Union have worked together to make a difference in our communities, opening up a world of reading for students at Bryant Elementary and Northwestern Elementary.
For nine years, the Magic of Storytelling campaign has harnessed the power of talent and networks at The Walt Disney Company to inspire the next generation of storytellers by providing books to educators serving children in need through First Book, an organization at nonprofit with which Disney has collaborated for decades.
