Rainforest of Reading

“A book is just a book until a child  picks it up and interprets it, that’s when the magic happens.” – Kari-Lynn Winters.

Sonya White at the One Schoolhouse Foundation is doing such meaningful and beautiful work. She recently shared this video with me of her visit to St. Lucia and the Reading Rainforest event. It is an event celebrating books and reading. Me, Too was one of the books including in the celebrations.

The video is  beautiful. It is incredibly uplifting to see so many people doing such good things, and there is really so much magic in the world, mostly in the hearts of children. This video would have made me cry regardless, but the fact that I can see my book in the hands of children I never dreamed it would reach, was almost too much.
