The Hornets Book Bus
The Charlotte Hornets Book Bus and the Hugo’s P.L.A.Y. Book presentation is part of the Charlotte Hornets’ Foundation. The purpose and goal of this program is to demonstrate the importance of reading to elementary school students in an effort to address one of Charlotte’s greatest educational issues – youth literacy. The Book Bus will travel to elementary schools within a 35 mile radius of the Spectrum Center. Hugo the Hornet will perform an interactive and entertaining program that inspires students to pick up a book and read every day. After the program, one class from each school will be able to go through the Book Bus and pick out a brand new book to take home.
