A Time-Honored Tradition: Books and Book Cubbies at St. Elizabeth Seton School
On May 16, Bring Me a Book, the Palo Alto University Rotary Club, and the St.Elizabeth Seton School staff joined forces to once again deliver our time-honored tradition of bringing book cubbies and books to the school’s youngest students. With funding from the ever-generous Eliane and Armand Neukermans, St. Elizabeth Seton students establish their home libraries as preschoolers and years later, many still have their book cubbies.
Several months ago, when Bring Me a Book founder Judy Koch and Executive Director Lois Bridges visited the classrooms, Judy asked the students in each classroom to raise their hands if they had a book cubby. It was heartening to see almost every hand shoot up—and, what’s more, nearly every student could identify the title(s) of their favorite books as well. Bring Me a Book, which strives to help all children develop a joyful reading habit, is deeply honored to serve this vibrant school reading community. We hope it’s a tradition that will continue for years to come.
