2015 One Book for Kids Selection: "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" by William Joyce
Because KPBS believes you are never too young to learn to love to read, the One Book for Kids Committee selected a companion book to "Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón for children ten and under, "The Fanstastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" by William Joyce. KPBS also partnered with Reach Out and Read-San Diego to select a companion book for our youngest readers, "It's a Little Book," by Lane Smith.
Programa de Lectura de la Comunidad que presentara "La Sombra del Viento" de Carlos Ruiz Zafón se extenderá a Tijuana.
