Let me take a moment to introduce you to our wonderful 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization known as the little book bus.
The little book bus delivers free gently used and new books to children in low-income families throughout the Tampa Bay area.
Our mission is to promote a love of reading by delivering free books and providing an engaging story time so children can have a positive and fun experience with reading.
By fostering a love of reading in our young children we are able to aid them in building their literacy skills to become accomplished readers.
Reading is an invaluable asset that builds language skills, expands the imagination, develops the mind, allows one to discover new things, and is a skill that should be developed by everyone.
When the little book bus arrives children are given the freedom to choose a book that piques their interest.
Allowing children the choice to pick their own book is one of the first steps to cultivating a love of reading.
There will be no pressure or expectations, just the freedom to find a book that they enjoy.
During our visits there will also be story time, which grants children an opportunity to hear a story and enjoy it with family and friends.
Making reading fun and engaging is another key step in cultivating a love of reading.
Donated books will be given to children living in low income families throughout our community to allow them to start their own personal book collections.
Thank you for visiting and we hope you become a part of our team.
Together we can make the world a better place one book at a time.
