How will the books be used?
The Parenting Cottage
We are so grateful to have won the giveaway! We are a Parents as Teachers Blue Ribbon affiliate, and we promote early childhood literacy with all our home visitation families by reading at each visit and providing at least one book per month to each family to build their libraries at home. We also have 8 community story time events which participants receive a copy of the book for their home. These books will be a great addition to our early childhood literacy efforts. Thank you so much, Books by the Bushel!
River Green Academ
We will use them for our Georgia Pre-K and AfterSchool Library.
Brevard Early Head Start
Third Acre Preschool
Hooray! Our program is called Third Acre Homeschool and the books will be used for teaching my children and helping them practice reading. We are so excited to expand our homeschool library! Thank you!
Parents as Teachers
Marshfield Area United Way
We are so grateful to be this month’s Build-A-Library Giveaway winners! We have multiple avenues through which we give away books to children in our community -- a book swap at a local elementary school, a partnership with our local hospital that distributes books at well-child visits, and – our newest addition – a Little Free Library! The books we receive from this giveaway will help us to stock the shelves for these initiatives and continue getting books into the hands of children in our community.
Springfield School District
The Springfield City School district will use these books to enhance the literacy development of our most vulnerable children. These books will be distributed by Parent Educators who will build a literacy lesson around each book for families to use in the home. We are so excited to partner with the Books by the Bushel family. Thank you!
UPMC Jameson Children’s Advocacy Center
We are an Early Head Start home visiting program and we share books with our families during each of our weekly visits. We also do socializations twice monthly and as I already mentioned we share a special book related to the theme. A parent is always invited to read the book to the group and the children love seeing a caregiver do the storytelling.
Thank you so much for this opportunity. The books will mean so much to our families.
Matthews Christian Library/COS Kids Child Development Center
These will be wonderful to use in our story times for the community and for the children in our childcare center classrooms. Our child development center serves anyone in the community but has a special outreach to single parents, so many of the children served come from single-parent homes. Every week I do one community story time and 6 story times for the childcare classes. We also supply the classrooms with new books every week to support their work with the children, in addition to providing the books for those in our community to check out.
Outreach Center for Community Resources
Outreach Center for Community Resources is a family center where we are going into families homes to provide support on various issues regarding parenting. We are continuously educating them on the importance of reading, and instilling in each family that they are their child's first and most important teacher. Many of the families don't have the means to purchase books, and this will allow us to fill each of our families' homes with books they can share with their children to hopefully develop a love for reading.
Community Action of Southern KY
Community Action of Southern KY/Family Nurturing In Home Program provides trained, in-home family service associates to work in the home on a short-term basis with families. The associates identify family strengths as well as areas of concern. The strengths based approach to in home services are designed to promote safe, stable, healthy families and to prevent child abuse and neglect. Numerous times we have found that the families lack in resources such as books to read or other developmental activities needed for growth. So these books will provide that growth that the children need so badly. Thanks again Books by the Bushel!
Excel Learning Center 8/ North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten Program
I want to thank you for awarding my class such a delightful assortment of books. Our program is the North Carolina Pre-Kindergarten also known (NC Pre-K). It is a state-funded program, community-based pre-kindergarten program designed to provide 4-year-old children, who may not otherwise be served, with valuable educational experiences for 6.5 hour per day. The books will be used by the children and teachers to enhance literacy in our program.
My supervisors were so amazed at the quality and quantity of the literature sent, and I have shared your website and resources with the other teachers in our program. The children were excited to open the box and pulled out all the books. Thank you again. With much gratitude, Cynthia H
