VCH delivers books to La Vina


For The Madera Tribune

George the Giraffe and Valley Children’s staff hand out books to La Vina Elementary Students.

 

Valley Children’s mascot, George the Giraffe, surprised students at La Vina Elementary Friday morning and delivered 300 books in honor of National Family Literacy Month. Valley Children’s Literacy Program and the Guilds Center for Community Health donated boxes of three different books - “George Make a Splash” and “George’s Counting Adventures,” which are printed in English and Spanish, and “Kids to Kids Choir,” written by former U.S. Poet Laureate and Valley native Juan Felipe Herrera.


Valley Children’s collaborated with Madera Unified on today’s special event, designed to promote a love of reading in the kids. Madera County also brought its Bookmobile to the campus today to encourage kids to sign up for free library cards and to allow them to check out books to read over Thanksgiving break.
