This spring our school district decided to close four schools. This was a sudden decision and very hard on the children and their families that attend the schools. My Own Book had visited the closing schools in the past. Each of the schools were located in the lower income areas of our downtown. We decided to take action to help make the best of a bad situation. We were able to buy and distribute through special assemblies a copy of Oh, The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss to every child at each of the closing schools. This was a great experience not only for the children who got a copy of the book but also for our volunteers. We are happy to be spreading the joy of reading.
