Students receive free books from the KSHB campaign ‘If you give a child a book…’

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Students at Lindbergh Elementary School in Kansas City, Kansas, have chosen four books to take home for free thanks to your donations.

In the fall, KSHB 41 News and the business owner’s charitable arm, The Scripps Howard Fund, raised donations for our “If You Give a Child a Book…” campaign to promote children’s literacy.

The donations enabled children at two schools to receive free books to take home and build their own libraries.

JA Rogers Elementary in Kansas City, Missouri, received books last month.

“I like different types of action books, comics and chapter books because they help you learn more and they are fun to read,” said Marriona, a fifth-grader at Lindbergh.

She picked out some books to give to her younger brother.

Her classmate, Isaiah, said he loves everything about reading.

“There are so many new things you can learn in one great book,” he explained.

You can make a donation to the ‘If you give a child a book…’ campaign online at any time.
