The 2012 Buy a Book for Students in Mexico Program

Welcome to 2013

With your help, we sent 50 copies of ¡Monarca Ven! Juega Conmigo to students in Mexico.

About This Project
The Mexico Book Project was established in 2004 by Monarchs Across Georgia (MAG) as a literacy effort for the schools that surround the Mexican overwintering sanctuaries. Initially, Georgia teachers traveled to the monarch region and gave books to the classrooms they visited. In recent years, the books from Georgia have been delivered by Journey North's Estela Romero to the same classrooms participating in the Symbolic Migration .Last year, the project expanded as Journey North and publisher Bas Relief, LLC joined Monarchs Across Georgia's Mexico's Book Project.

MAG is a committee of the Environmental Education Alliance of Georgia (EEA).

packing up

When all the orders were in and all the bookplates in place last year, we packed up the books to send them to Estela in Mexico. 50 books headed out by UPS en route to students in Mexico. Shipping internationally is tricky, but, after a few interesting quirks, the books were in Estela's hands and heading out to the schools with Journey North's Symbolic Monarchs from classrooms around the US and Canada. They were well received by students and teachers alike.
