I have such good memories of RIF at my elementary school in Florida. The idea that strangers would come and wheel a cart into each classroom and everybody got to choose TWO books to KEEP…magic.
Today is RIF’s 50th birthday, and there will be a celebration live-streaming this morning.
There will be celebrity guests, including children’s author Tara Lazar (I love Little Red Gliding Hood!).
Tune in if you can to celebrate this awesome organization with your students:>)
