May 18, 2020
EDINA, Minn – (abdobooks.com), a leading educational publisher based in Minneapolis, is going above and beyond to get young readers books during the pandemic.
With the school year coming to an end and libraries temporarily closed, ABDO wants to ensure that young readers still have access to educational reading. ABDO is committed to providing Little Free Libraries across our communities with books, drawstring backpacks, and easy no-sew facemask instructions.
The Abdo Kids team—Executive Director Jennie Forsberg, Managing Editors Grace Hansen and Kenny Abdo, Production Manager Teddy Borth, and Editorial & Sales Assistant John Hansen—are filling Little Free Libraries across the Twin Cities while following social distancing and CDC guidelines.
Executive Director Jennie Forsberg says, “My seven-year old and I wanted to find ways to stay engaged with our community during quarantine. Filling Little Free Libraries was the perfect opportunity to give back to our community during its time of need.”
ABDO prides itself on producing quality content that both educates and engages young readers. With nonfiction texts for PreK–12 readers and instructions to make their own masks, young readers can keep reading and keep safe during this time.
“The reason why we do what we do is to make sure every kid gets an opportunity to learn while being entertained,” says Kenny Abdo, Managing Editor. “And if there is a hurdle in the way, it’s up to us to overcome it.”
