Planting Seeds

The U.S. budget airline JetBlue, along with publisher Random House and author Mary Pope Osborne have been bringing books to children in U.S. cities that are considered book deserts or communities with difficult access to children’s books. The Soar With Reading project has installed vending machines that allow kids to get free books during the summer months.

The program has installed vending machines in five cities, and this year they have set-up four in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to distribute 100,000 English, Spanish, and Bilingual children’s books. Check out the project website to see how you can participate.
