It can be hard for some kids to get access to books to read. But one man in Italy may have found a solution to this problem.
According to the BBC, Retired schoolteacher Antonio La Cava has created the Bibliomotocarro, a three-wheeled van that also functions as a mobile library. He uses his van to travel to remote villages in Basilicata, Italy to help young children learn the joys of reading.
La Cava stated that he believes fostering a growing interest in reading is important for children.
“Carrying out such action has a value, not only social, not only cultural, but has a great ethical meaning.”
La Cava hopes that the more attention is Bibliomotocarro gets in the news, the more younger people will be encouraged to read.
