Meet Iris Gonzalez, a rising fifth grader from Franklin Elementary. She claims the My Home Library Build Event is something she will remember for the rest of her life: “This is the best day of my life because I get free books that I want to read and I can create my own home library!” she said. The books Iris chose were Mr. Pants, It’s Go Time, two of the Diary of a Wimpy Kids, one of the Captain Underpants, and Secret Life of Pets. She is a fast reader so she will have read these books in no time!
Iris loves to read about dinosaurs, inspiring her to be a paleontologist when she grows up. Her favorite dinosaur is a Tyrannosaurus Rex because they are big and scary. When she is not in school, she loves to read to her little sister and watch PBS Kids. Iris’ dream is to one day have a house full of books so she can give books to other people.
