A study conducted in the U.S. in 2015, revealed that traditional toys, like wooden puzzles and shape-sorters, and reading books advocated "a rich communicative interaction between parents and infants.”

Reading to children at an early stage of their life advances their language, vocabulary, and literacy skills.

Therefore, it is quite essential to keep children occupied with books, and this bus driver understands that.
Callison store books for her student-passengers
Arkansas Department of Education recently updated internet users on their Facebook page about how a bus driver, who is also a teacher, devised a clever way to make her students read.
A picture showed Julie Callison, a special education teacher and bus driver at Arkansas's Drew Central School District, and her students, the latter were in the bus having a great time with their books.
The post revealed that Julie Callison stores a chunk of books on her bus to ensure students can read anywhere.

On Friday afternoons, she creates an ingenious plan which includes arranging older students to come along for the ride to further educate the kids called ‘special guest reader.’
“The way this works is when students get on the bus they can get up to three books. After they read those, they can share with students around them, then put them back in the bucket on the way out the door.”
Reaction to Callison's innovation
Everybody had only good things to say about the bus driver. Her good intentions are unquestionable. Some of the reactions the kindhearted woman's good deeds warranted were:

Callison is building great leaders of tomorrow, and we appreciate her. The world needs more innovations like this so the children can have a bright future.
Hopefully, many are inspired by this, and they go along this awesome ride!
