Spirit of PaperTigers Project

Following on from my note yesterday the folks at PaperTigers have just announced today a wonderful new initiative that they will be implementing each year — the Spirit of PaperTigers Project.

From the website:

The Purposes of the Spirit of PaperTigers Project (SPT)

To donate a selection of books which reflect the aims of PaperTigers, putting them into the hands of children in areas of need in different parts of the world:

Many organizations are doing excellent work in getting books to children through schools and libraries in areas of need, and our efforts are not intended to replicate their work. The specific focus of this SPT project is to select a set of books published each year because their content, focus, and outreach express the goals of reading and literacy, as well as encouraging curiosity among young people about the world around them.

There’s a lot more information, including the books chosen this year for the Spirit of PaperTigers Project at the website. Do have a look.
