'Ice Cream for Books' a sweet success!
More than 225 children of all ages scooped up books at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary's annual "Ice Cream for Books" Thursday evening at the school. It's an event that encourages families with young children to read and recycle books.
"It was a great turnout," said Pam Hanson, a WDC teacher who coordinates the event that continues to grow in popularity each year.
This free, school-sponsored event features a book swap, book bingo, a free book-a-minute giveaway, and, of course, ice cream treats! The book swap is always a favorite as a child donates books and collects tickets to "buy" a number in return.
