Three Kidlit Publishers Come Together to Send Books to Kids at Sandy Hook Elementary School

“The books were loaded onto the CPU’s literacy bus, which in the wake of the tragedy was transformed into the All Aboard – Sandy Hook Coping and Caring Parent Express Bus, and made stops at nine cities before arriving at Newtown City Hall on Christmas Eve…Candlewick selected Maya Soetoro-Ng’s Ladder to the Moon, illustrated by Yuyi Morales, to give out to children and families, and also provided a collection of other titles that would stay on the bus.” Scholastic gave the following titles out: Skippyjon Jones Up & Down, Race Car Driver, Hide & Seek Colors, How Do I Love You, and Igraine the Brave. Simon & Schuster donated 400 books for this cause.
