If You Give A Child A Book: Story Time

For almost a decade ABC 10News has made the mission of sharing the magic of reading through annual book fairs a key commitment to our community. And now through Story Time, we take one step further towards putting even more books into the hands of students throughout San Diego County by expanding the annual “If you give a child a book…” annual campaign to monthly classroom “mini book fairs”.

In partnership with the San Diego Council on Literacy and North Island Credit Union, with support of the San Diego County Office of Education students in Title 1 schools across the county are receiving new books of their very own.

Join us each month as we travel to a different school with the ABC 10News team to deliver the magic of reading.
