What do the Book Bus and Diary of a Wimpy Kid have in common? They were both a huge hit with children all over Pinellas County during this summer's Book Bus tour. As a JWB and Pinellas County Schools partnership that aims to reduce summer learning loss and inspire kids to read, the bus visited 52 sites and gave away 5,000 free books this year. JWB staff and other volunteers had a blast watching little faces light up at the site of a new book at each stop. JWB Board member and Pinellas County Commissioner, the Honorable Karen Seel, is featured as well.
So what are you waiting for? Climb aboard by watching this lively video featuring the bus and kids themselves!
Special thanks to Representative Ben Diamond for joining us on the Book Bus!
