Third graders at Anderson Elementary School on Thursday received a new science-related book of their choice that included topics from nature and outer space to how magnets work.

Anderson received 150 books selected by the American Association of the Advancement of Science as a part of the Subaru Loves Learning book donation program.

“They were able to come into a classroom when we were delivering a science lesson and it was great to see the kids conclude that lesson and get books that pretty much inspire them to read more about science,” said principal Mike Martindale.

The books were brought in by Lithia Reno Subaru representatives, who said books are delivered to a different local school each year.

Martindale said the donation means a lot to his students.

“It’s great when we can get the community in and support our goals,” Martindale said. “It means a bunch to kids just to be able to take home a book and it be a book they’re interested in.”
