Give a tantalizing book that will have them begging for more time to read!

#GivingTuesday #givingbooksday

Josie was a reluctant reader until she discovered the Harry Potter series. It was like a switch went off in her brain. Now she can’t get her nose out of a book. Finding the right book can be transformative.

Would you be willing to give the gift of a captivating can’t-wait-to-read, can’t-put-it-down, don’t-want-to-go-to-bed, BOOK to our students?

Our students LOVE to read. And students in grades 4-8 read a book a week in our high volume reading program. That’s 4 books a month per student. 37 books a year. And at least 148 books per student during 6-8th grade.

Can you find 148 books that you want to read in your local library?

This year, we’re dedicating #GivingTuesday to #givingbooksday. We’d love to have you join us!

Your small act of kindness will take a child on an adventure. Inspire them to learn more about the solar system. Delve into the complexities of world cultures. That’s the power of a good book.

  • $17.95  will buy a hardcover book
  • $34.95 will buy a book AND a reader’s response notebook
  • $71.80 will buy a month of reading adventures
  • $664.15 will buy a year’s supply of page-turners for a student

These numbers represent the average cost of the books, but they don’t begin to quantify the VALUE. Because you know that strong readers are more likely to find success in high school and college. And that’s only the beginning…

Imagine the joy you feel when you find EXACTLY the book that you’re looking for. Don’t miss the opportunity to make that happen for a child.

Will you make a #GivingTuesday gift on November 28?
