What We Do

Provide Books

We provide high quality age appropriate books for our children's homes and  their childcare centers.

Promote Reading

We promote daily reading to children 0-5 during the most critical time of their brain development.

Create Awareness

 80% of preschools serving low             income populations have NO age

books for their children

61% of children living in low income homes have NO books

 

Only 41% of third graders in Charlotte are 

reading on grade level

When children are not reading proficient by 3rd grade they are 4 times more likely to drop out of school and 2/3 of those children will end up in jail or on welfare

The most successful way to improve the reading achievement of  children is to increase their access to books.
