School librarians and school libraries support students in academic achievement, lifelong learning and reading. Mrs. Nelson's has teamed up with the California School Library Association as well as the California Library Association (public libraries) to promote library advocacy through an extensive PR campaign. With the help of some famous illustrators, we have been able to garner quite a lot of media attention as well as the support of parents, educators, and city officials. All proceeds will benefit the library advocacy campaign. You can view more about this campaign or shop for products by clicking here.
