The Free Library of Philadelphia is celebrating Pennsylvania’s eight annual One Book, Every Young Child selection, The Bus for Us by Suzanne Bloom! One Book, Every Young Child is a statewide reading initiative designed to highlight the impact of early literacy. The program emphasizes the importance of reading to children early and often AND engaging them in conversations about the books that are read.
Suzanne Bloom will be visiting the Free Library of Philadelphia!
Join us for an opportunity to meet Suzanne Bloom, the author of The Bus for Us. From a fire engine to a front loader, Ms. Bloom introduces young readers to a variety of vehicles through simple text and spirited illustrations. The Bus for Us is a beautiful picture book, perfect for sharing with young children!
