Two Barbies, One Mission, One Paper

Hey kids! It's Convertible Barbie and her friend, also named Barbie! They're on a road trip! To a summer reading adventure! At the Denver Public Library! It's all part of the summer reading program at DPL that attracted 31,218 young readers last year!

Check out Passenger Barbie! She's hot! Check out her choice of reading material! It's hot, hot, hot!

Check out Convertible Barbie! She's hot! No hands on the wheel! Good thing this is just a display at the library! Don't try this at home!

Have a great summer, kids! And read, read, read!
