Read Every Day, Lead a Better Life
Global Literacy Campaign Auction
The amazing people at Scholastic asked me to share with you information on their global literacy campaign auction. I have said it before, and I'll say it again: No One Does Children's Books Like Scholastic. This month, they are partnering with Reading is Fundamental and Reach Out and Read to continue their efforts of putting books into the hands of children in need.
Here are two of my favorite items up for bid:
(Stuart Ramson/InsiderImages for Scholastic)
(current bid: at $850)
(current bid: $900)
Other artists include David Shannon (author of No! David!), Jon J. Muth (author of Zen Shorts), Normal Bridwell (author of Clifford series), and more!
To view the all the spectacular original artwork by all 12 artists, simply go to www.scholastic.com/readeveryday.
From there, you can then pick your own favorite, place a bid, and put books into the hands of the neediest kids - and you will have a piece of original art by a beloved children’s artist that illustrates the important role of books in all our lives.
