The books were donated to Read Out and Read of Greater New York.
“It is so important to keep kids’ minds and creativity flowing, and these books will make such a difference for our young patients,” said Dr. Cheryl Clark of the Institute for Family Health. “We care for kids’ health, and also for the whole child, so we want to see them develop a healthy interest in reading, early on.”
Books of Wonder and Sylvan also teamed up this past summer to collaborate on a series of author events to inspire kids to read–and to collect book donations. For every book purchased at an author event, one book was donated to meet the 100-book goal. Reach Out and Read expressed its gratitude to both organizations.
“We are so grateful to Sylvan In-Home and Books of Wonder for this amazing book donation,” said Evelyn Wu, regional program coordinator of Reach Out and Read of Greater New York. “And so are the kids and families who will enjoy them!”
