This accomplishment was very visible as GMA's Tony Perkins reported live from the Damon J. Keith Elementary School in Detroit on May 18. Surrounded by students and the 2,000 books they received, Perkins told the stories of three children who've overcome emotional and academic challenges through reading.
GMA and First Book will continue to travel the country with Book Drive America to encourage child literacy and put books in the hands of American children who need them most.
