Placing books in the hands of
... Puts reading in their future
The good pirates of
Kiwanis Club of
Carlsbad believe that getting books in the hands and homes of
children who may not ordinarily have them, stimulates their love
of reading and increases their success in learning. With that as
mission, they proudly present the NEW
Captain Book Literacy Program.
It all started in 2000, when the
reading pirate Captain Book
(aka Dr. Morris Pike) dressed in fun pirate attire and traveled to
schools and agencies that care for and educate young children.
Since that time, thousands of children have free books to treasure
and keep as their own.
