It's a good day when Congressman Donald Norcross, Commissioner Melinda Hopkins Kane, and Cherry Hill Mayor Susan Shin Angulo tour the Book Bank with the 2020 and 2021 New Jersey Teachers of the Year, Angel Santiago 2020-2021 New Jersey State Teacher of the Year and Kimberly Dickstein Hughes.
A big thanks to Congressman Norcross donating overstock children's books from The Library of Congress!
Congressman Donald Norcrossand I are discussing a A Fish Out Of Water by Helen Palmer. Did you know she was Dr. Seuss' wife? Something clicked, because we both LOVED this book growing up. Books forge connections.
The Congressman asked me in front of the group why I thought actual paper books are better for young children than the electronic types. How you think I answered?
So grateful for the visit and that he donated books from The Library of Congress' surplus books program. Who's been to the Library of Congress and what sticks?
