Dunwoody, GA [April 1, 2014] – Preschoolers and families at the Primrose School of Dunwoody have helped to provide books for local children in need after their month-long book drive.  On April 1st, more than 400 new and gently used books, valued at over $1400, were donated Reach Out and Read, a national non-profit committed to promoting literacy through pediatric 
primary care.  Local Reach Out and Read representative, Debbie Bartolomei, accepted the books on behalf of Reach Out and Read Georgia.

The book drive is a part of Og’s Bountiful Books, a Primrose reading program designed to encourage parents to read to their children at home and send in favorite books to school to share with their classmates and those in need. “Og” is the official Primrose school bookworm – as well as one of the school’s character development mascots. The Og’s Bountiful Books program is a key part of the Balanced Learning® system, which balances academics, play and 
character development.
