REBUILDING THE VILLAGE THROUGH ADVOCACY,

ARTS, EDUCATIONAL AND FAMILY PROGRAMMING

Literacy & resources for children 6 months to 18 years old. Representation by way of diverse authors, books & storytellers. We encourage and develop young readers to discover books, share stories, explore dialogue, and have fun! From youth book clubs, family events, writing workshops, educational services, and online workshops, you’ll find plenty of inspiration for a great conversation and lots for your kids and families to get involved in. 

 

Since 2018, we’ve impacted over 20,000 young readers

reading statistics

Providing kids with a stream of age-appropriate books can triple interest in childhood reading (Harris, L., 2003)

Only 35% of public school students read at or above the Proficient level, in Texas the average drops to only 25% (U.S. Department of Education, 2017)

Kids who regularly read have better language skills, larger vocabulary and high cognitive skills than non-readers (Child Development, 2006)

47% of fourth-graders from low-income families read below the basic level (Rif.org)
