Thanks to @donalynbooks on Twitter (no idea how she popped into my feed! It’s magic. Here’s her blog ) for this link to an amazing enterprise by an artist in Buenos Aires. He drives this converted van around Argentina giving out books to all and sundry. This film was shot in the capital but he aims to take these ‘weapons of mass instruction’ to people in parts of the country where many children don’t have much schooling at all.

My daughter goes to study at Buenos Aires university from July, and I’m hoping I may get to visit. I’ll look out for the Ford – and maybe take a few spare books over too!
