Helping the Community

Here is yet another video from our recent events and activities.
If you’re new here, we’ve been busy all summer– giving away free books, releasing our new book, announcing the release date for Casey and Callie Cupcake and planning our two-month national tour.
This video was produced by a local cable station and is just awesome!

By the way, if you read this blog and know parents or teachers NATIONWIDE, please let them know that we are currently booking schools for our national tour.
Talk to you soon!

I Felt Like Oprah!

I’ll admit it… now I know why Oprah gave away all that free stuff… it wasn’t for ratings or good television— it’s because it feels really, really awesome!

As you might remember, we ran across a local elementary school that was closing. And their library books? Straight to the recycling bin!!! So we made the move to save them.

In June, we gave away over 2000 books at a book swap in Westland, Michigan– a suburb of Detroit. At the book swap, we collected a ton of books, though— and the school had more!

So this past weekend, we held another event to give away these books! We gave away every last one— close to 3000!!!!

Furthermore, a Michigan State Senator, Glenn Anderson, contributed over 500 BRAND NEW books! We decided to give these away IN THE PARADE! That’s right— we didn’t hand out candy… we handed out books!

Go see our website to see some photos!

And, below is a cool treat. We’ve put together a photo slideshow of photos from this very special weekend. The audio you are hearing is our second interview on 107.7 The Wolf, with Sandy Bennett. The interview and the photos are all about Clipper!!
