Last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate Captain Book’s 100,000th book donation at the Encinitas Library with local children’s author, Sally Pla. Captain Book spreads the love of reading to children all over San Diego county through school visits and free books.
I simply love seeing people give back in whatever unique and quirky ways their imaginations inspire. Captain Book told us about the many thoughtful touches to his program, including a pirate telescope that “sees” beautiful gifts in each child’s heart, treasure chests filled with goodies for kids, and a donated ambulance, converted into a free book delivery truck that Captain Book drives through Camp Pendleton and underserved communities.
