Partnering With Special Olympics, American Library Assoc. Penguin Random House Donates Books

olympicsPenguin Random House, in partnership with Special Olympics and the American Library Association, is participating in a pilot program that supports Special Olympics Young Athletes through a donation of 1,000 children’s books: 500 copies each of WE’RE ALL WONDERS by R.J. Palacio and THE SNEETCHES by Dr. Seuss. These titles will contribute to efforts that bring inclusive learning and play to communities across the country through local libraries.

To continue this engagement at home, participating libraries will have Young Athletes backpacks available for checkout, with physical activities resources and children’s books on differences and inclusion, including those donated by Penguin Random House.

Special Olympics Young Athletes is a sport and play program for children with and without intellectual disabilities, ages 2 to 7 years old. Through play, SOYA not only help kids develop important skills for development but support families, teachers, caregivers and others to ensure inclusive communities.
