Reading on the Ranch
Support Literacy in Rural Schools this Holiday Season
In today’s age, it is hard to think of a little kid with nothing to read at home. But, the reality is there are kids of all ages without a good book at night, classrooms without enough to go around, and school libraries in need of some fresh pages.
Help Tri-State Livestock News support our rural elementary schools in their need of books, with the Reading on the Ranch book drive Nov. 25 – Jan. 5. Please donate new or barely used books from PreK – 5th grade reading levels. Readers can mail them to our office using the discounted media mail rate through the Post Office, drop them off at our office or purchase online to shop and ship. There is a bin for after hours drop off at our office. At the end of our book drive, we will distribute to local rural schools in our region.
Don’t know what sort of books to buy and send? Here are a few links below to great titles that make it easy to click, pick and donate.
In conjunction with this book drive, we are also doing a coloring page contest, illustrated by Jan Swan Wood. There are five age groups for entry, 0-3, 4-5, 6-8, 9-12 and adult. The lucky winners in each bracket will receive a local authors’ signed children’s books. Look for it in your next issue of Tri-State Livestock News, or download the form here.
No child should go to bed at night or to school without a story to read. Your help is needed to spread the word and support literacy in our rural schools. Join us in spreading some holiday cheer this season. For every 10 books you donate, you will receive a 3-month subscription to the Tri-State Livestock News to keep or to give away as a gift!
Check out some of these books that would be great to send to rural schools.
