Over 195,000 Quality Children's Books to Head Start!

How Soho Sends Over 195,000 Books to Head Start
Soho selects wonderful, age-appropriate children's books from many hundreds of possible titles.  The books show up in hundreds of boxes, each of which contains multiple copies of just one title.  The task is to create over 1,000 boxes (each with an assortment of different titles), and to then ship these boxes to over 1,000 Head Start classroom across Virginia.   That means opening every box, taking one book from each, putting it into a new box, and doing that for each of the selected tiitles.  Once that's done, boxes are sealed, labeled for shipment, palletized, and sent off for delivery.

Here are a few photos as we prepare the book collections for one of several shipments to Virginia's over 1,000 Head Start classrooms as well as photos of the kids who read them throughout the school year.
