Succeeding begins with reading. Help us put NEW books in the hands of children in need and close the achievement gap for Washington kids.
Real Lifep>Books for Kids partners with many wonderful programs to deliver new books and literacy services to children in need.
This comes from Mason County Literacy: An excited boy of 5 came bursting through the classroom doors and eagerly exclaimed, "My mom has a hard time reading but she tried anyway and read this book to me 600 times! Do you have any more 600 time books?"
And from Valhalla Elementary in Auburn: "Our students love having their very own books to keep. They love showing them to others and talking about the stories once they have read them. It is such a positive experience for many kids whose positive experiences are few and far between."
The #1 predictor of future academic success is the number of books in the home. Giving to Books for Kids helps ensure at-risk children get to experience the joy and the opportunity provided by books and reading.
