|A Good Book Drive is an annual book drive to bring stories to a new generation of readers, and support kids in need of new books. Running through the month of November, A Good Book Drive will be inspiring Vancouverites to purchase a new copy of their favorite kids’ book and deliver it to set locations throughout the city to be donated to this year’s book drive recipient, Vancouver literacy program The Writers Exchange .
A Good Book Drive has teamed up with a great group of independent Vancouver retailers that will each house a A Good Book Box . Here you can drop off your favorite kids book and personalize your donation with a special bookplate, sharing the story of why that book is special to you.
Ambrosia Humphrey, Director of HR at Hootsuite , donated The Paper Bag Princess. This book graced her with the power of confidence and imagination and encouraged Ambrosia’s mother to look beyond the social norm of raising a daughter in pink dresses.
Ambrosia tells us why she hopes the underling tone of this book will continue to spread a message of self love and strength for other girls.
