Hundreds of children at McAllen Castaneda elementary school received free books on Wednesday from the Pearson Foundation.
It's part of the Read Mobile Program that's giving away 30,000 books in 30 days to Texas school children. The foundation equips Texas families and libraries with print and online books for children who may not otherwise have a library of their own. Castaneda elementary is one of many schools in the McAllen, Laredo and Brownsville areas receiving a visit from the "we Give Books" read mobile this week.
