A non-profit that distributes e-readers in poor countries is touting the possibly world-changing effect it will achieve by distributing a new book written by Chelsea Clinton.
Worldreader, founded in 2010 by a former Amazon executive, has an admirable goal. Noting that poor children in Africa and Asia have few or no books to read, the organization distributes e-readers in developing countries, in the hopes that it will improve literacy and education.
While the organizations e-readers contain thousands of books in over three dozen languages, the organization is acting particularly proud that its e-readers will now have the new book Its Your World written by Chelsea Clinton, the privileged daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton. According to Worldreader, Clintons words will inspire young African minds and help point the way for them to change the world.
So many of todays world challenges have the biggest impact on our youth. And children and young adults feel a real sense of responsibility to do their part, the organization said in a Tuesday press release. The reality for many children around the world however, is that they dont have knowledge on what these challenges are or how to even begin to tackle them. Chelsea Clintons book, Its Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! addresses this problem.
Clinton currently works as a board member for the Clinton Foundation, her familys massive multi-billion dollar charity enterprise, and is also closely involved with the Clinton Global Initiative. Her new book, targeted at kids aged 10-14, is intended to inspire children to take action on issues like food insecurity, gender equality, and climate change.
Clintons book was one of several hundred that were donated to Worldreader by the publisher Penguin Random House, though its receiving the most attention. Other books that were donated earlier, including titles from the Magic School Bus and Berenstain Bears series, may be more appealing to children.
Worldreader has had some links to the Clintons in the past, as founder David Risher is an invited member of the Clinton Global Initiative. At the groups 2014 meeting, he made a pledge to provide books to 5 million additional people in the next three years.

Like Obama’s jobs plan book ,blank pages ?
Oh. my. gosh.
How’s about an mp3 player with 25 of Bammy’s greatest speeches?
Faith and Deeds
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, Go in peace; keep warm and well fed, but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, You have faith; I have deeds. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe thatand shudder.
Impossible for me to wrap my mind around around that one.
The poor people do indeed need something to burn in the fire on cold nights.
This is just another scam to funnel money to the Clintons. I’m sure the only buyer for this book ever contemplated was this “charity” who then could only move it by giving it away to African kids.
Or soft enough to wipe your rectum with?
How much was Chelsea paid for the rights to this “book”?
And this no-nothing porker gets royalties foe each and ever download.
It’s an e-book.
How are the little waifs even going to charge the darn things?
You beat me to it.
Mine was: The book should be distributed with a useful supplement: “101 Chelsea Clinton Book Recipes”
Yeah, because she's done so much to improve the world. She has about as much cause to write a book as Obozo did when he (Ayers??) wrote his autobiography. But, you have to give it to both of them: Both found a publisher for a book about someone who has accomplished absolutely nothing in their life.
I thought it was an e-book. Can't even use the pages to wipe your backside.
Her scumbag parents had to start a business just so this mutt can have a job.
re: This is just another scam to funnel money to the Clintons.
While deducting it from their taxes for their “charitable contribution”.
