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.
