2012 marks the the 14th year that the Bucks and Sam’s Hope Literacy Foundation joined together to host the annual Bucks Book Blast.
Over 1,000 Milwaukee grade school students visited the Bradley Center for a full afternoon of reading and entertainment.
The focus of the afternoon is on building a love of reading in students.
The children got to select a brand new book, donated by Scholastic Book Fairs, K.I.D.S. and New Threads of Hope, to take home for their own personal library before being treated to an entertainment show by Bango and company.
Later, the players and coaches joined in on the fun, dividing the students into smaller groups in order to read and discuss the books with them.
