“The loss of the school’s library books brought tears to the children’s eyes,”
said Dr. Robert M. Crowell, founder and president of Eve’s Fund.
“We hope our support and a visit from the Magic Tree House authors will bring back some smiles and laughter.”
Since 2008, the joint literacy efforts of Eve’s Fund and the Magic Tree House team - including publisher Random House - have had a positive impact on thousands of students in the Four Corners area. Crowell reached out to literacy partners Osborne and Boyce after learning of the Mesa Elementary library fire.
