Reading Gives You Superpowers!

Captain UnderpantsIn 2017 the Children’s Book Recycling Center launched a new program, Reading Gives You Superpowers, thanks to a generous donation by author Dav Pilkey. We provide transportation for teachers from low-income schools to bring their class to Children’s Book World and allow each student to select a book of their own choosing to keep. The mission of this program is to encourage visits to bookshops and libraries, and for students to get the joy of owning a book they’ve selected. We hope it will help make kids aware that Reading Gives You Superpowers!

If you are from a low-income (minimum 80% of the students eligible for free lunch) school and would like to apply to bring your class to Children’s Book World, or a donor who would like to sponsor a class, please email Cheryl Clark at cbwchildrensbooks@gmail.com.

We are asking for your financial support of Readers Gives You Superpowers! in our quest to continue and expand our outreach to underserved kids, many without books in their homes. For private donations, corporate sponsorship and/or opportunities for ongoing support to a school or class please email cbwchildrensbooks@gmail.com or call Sharon, 310 559-2665.
