First Lady Melania Trump sent packages of children’s books to one lucky school library in all 50 stateslast month. The packages included some of her and Barron’s favorite books, such as Green Eggs and Ham, and several other Dr. Suess classics.
Most of the schools were delighted to receive such a thoughtful gift from the First Lady, however, one school librarian flat out rejected the books, depriving her students of additional free reading material.
Liz Phipps Soeiro, the librarian at Cambridgeport Elementary School turned down the gift and wrote an editorial for a reading blog detailing the ridiculous reasons why she is turning them down.
“My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science. Multiple studies show that schools with professionally staffed libraries improve student performances.”
The verdict is still out on why this is a reason for rejecting Melania’s gift, but the librarian goes even further.
“You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Suess is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips.”
While the librarian seems to think her snark would be appreciated, she was dead wrong. The school came down on her hard and released a statement in response to the disrespectful post and refusal of the gift..
“In this instance, the employee was not authorized to accept or reject donated books on behalf of the school or school district. We have counseled the employee on all relevant policies, including the policy against public resources being used for political purposes.”
The amount of political posturing we have seen from people who should not be using their official position for political reasons is astounding. The liberals in this country are completely losing it over Donald Trump winning the election.
SHARE this everywhere if this woman should be fired for politicizing children’s books!
