BERNIE'S BOOK BANK
Bernie’s Book Bank sources, processes and distributes quality children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers and school-age children throughout Chicagoland. The project works to encourage a love of reading with access to quality books for all children. WHY? "We believe that books and reading are both the vehicle and the road to a better life".
Every student at Olson received a bright green bags of books on Friday. These are books to read, keep, share, or pass along to other readers. This wonderful project is a great kick off for our 40 BOOK CHALLENGE!
40 BOOK CHALLENGE
Our goal for this challenge is to promote a love of reading, to instill the habit of reading, and to expose our students to a variety of books and genres. We know that reading skills develop as students practice reading.
