June Peek-A-Box!

Peek-A-Box Logo, blue polka dot with a stack of books.This month we are going around the world in 20 books!  Join fellow armchair travelers as we read must-read books set in different countries around the world.  And what do travelers need?  They need snacks and travel necessities of course!  In this month’s box you will find trail mix, pop tart bites, a travel size first aid pouch, a travel size manicure set, and disposable soap sheets for hand washing on the go.  Plus, there is a tactile map of the United States for you to mark what states you have visited!  Below is a sneak peek at the worldly books.  Thanks for traveling with the Iowa Library for the Blind and Print Disabled!
