One Book 4 Colorado has officially kicked off! Children around the state are attending special programs, hearing guest readers and, most importantly, receiving their free copy of Giraffe’s Can’t Dance! the 2016 winner.
People all over the state are getting excited for this year’s book- including the giraffes at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo where Lt Governor Joe Garcia announced the winning book on Monday.
The One Book 4 Colorado program gives 75,000 copies of the same book to every 4-year-old in the state in either English or Spanish. It’s part of the effort to help children read and to make sure they love doing it. For more information about One Book 4 Colorado or to find events in your area, visit http://www.onebook4colorado.org/
