It feels great sharing this news with you on Day One of Black History Month:
To donate a selection of books which reflect the aims of PaperTigers, putting them into the hands of children in areas of need in different parts of the world.
The Spirit of PaperTigers project is best understood within the overall goals of PaperTigers: that is, to encourage literacy, helping to make children hungry readers and thus helping them form a lifelong habit. It is also our goal to do that within the context of promoting “multicultural” or “cross-cultural” books: this means we focus on books that promote awareness of, knowledge about, and positive acceptance of “the other”, books that encourage empathy and understanding. We aim to do this through books children and young adults enjoy reading rather than books they would regard as medicine adults force them to take!
Swing by the Paper Tigers site to learn all about this exciting endeavor!
