Our Mission

"Strengthening communities by providing quality books and literacy resources for children and their families to use at home during the earliest stages of development." 

Early Reading Benefits

The key is to start at birth. Immersing a child in a rich literacy environment can be a stronger predictor of literacy and academic achievement than family income. The more words a child hears, the larger the child’s vocabulary, and the larger the child’s vocabulary, the more likely the child will be a proficient reader.
