Why do we need books at home?

April 1, 2013

Having books in the home has been proven to:

Improve children's reading performance

Encourage children to read more and for longer periods of time

Create improved attitudes toward reading and learning among children

Children who live in print-rich environments and who are read to during the first years of life are much more likely to learn to read on schedule


Help us give more books this year with a financial gift or a book donation.
