Back to School with the Curiosity Cruiser!

Back to School with the Curiosity Cruiser!

We are jumping back into the new year with school visits! This past Wednesday, February 9, the Curiosity Cruiser team visited Cimarron Elementary in Katy, Texas to give away books to the students there. In total we gave away 126 books to both Pre-K and Kindergarten grade children.

Visiting a school is a special event, where each child may come aboard our Curiosity Cruiser vehicle and explore the many titles we have to giveaway. This Super Library on Wheels is a state-of-the-art mobile library that seeks to inspire children all over Houston to develop a love of reading and gain access to great books and opportunities- leading to lifelong learning and the ability to reach their fullest potential.  

On Wednesday, each child came aboard and picked out one book. Children can pick whichever book catches their eye or, if they need help picking, our cruiser team will suggest a few titles that may be of interest to them.

We have many popular titles right now, our most popular being the “How to Code…” series by Josh Funk and “If I Built  A…” by Chris Van Dusen.

We also have many great titles including popular character books like Pete the Cat and Peppa Pig! A few children grabbed classics like   “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendakor, a personal favorite, “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs!” by Jon Scieszka.  

They are welcome to flip through each book and pick the one they would like to have the most, getting to visit each school and see every child’s individual interest has been a joy!
