KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Scholastic Publishing Company donated 12,000 books to Edgemont Elementary School in Cocke County.

Eighty students selected which ones they wanted to keep.

Brittany James is a mom of three who says her six-year-old daughter was still working on learning phonics.

“It will also help with her vocabulary and her imagination cause you know all kids have got a imagination and the best ones are actually through books,” said James.

Scholastic partnered with Save the Children, a global non-profit that works in Cocke County to help students succeed.
