Blue Baboon Books in the Schools
One of the best things about Blue Baboon Books is working with schools on book fairs and events. I get to meet some amazing kiddos and their families, which gives me so much optimism about the future of our world. Whenever I hear someone rant about “Kids these days …,” followed by some generalized complaint about youth being lazy or unmotivated or spoiled or blah-blah-blah, I have to wonder what focus group was used; because the kids I meet are brilliant, boisterous, curious, enthusiastic, polite, empathetic, thoughtful, and inspirational.
Thumbs up to the village raising each child … mom, dad, sisters, brothers, aunties, uncles, grandparents, teachers, neighbors, mentors, and random strangers. You’re doing a good job with this generation.
I also love being able to give something back to the schools, teachers, and classrooms. For each event or book fair at the school, schools earn rewards: 10% of the sales in cash or 20% of the sales in brand-new books! It feels good to be able to give something to all the hardworking teachers and administrators who do so much for our kids!
