provides books to children in need
Books4Kids is a non profit organization created to get books to children from low income homes that have no books to read in their homes. Families that struggle financially barely have enough money for food, clothing and shelter, so a book would be the last thing they would purchase for their children. Children need to practice reading daily to keep up their reading skills. So our goal is to give each child (Pre-K through 3rd grade) from a low income home a small library consisting of 20 books, 10 picture books and 10 books at the child's grade level. It is extremely important that children are reading on grade level by the end of third grade. Did you know that states create prisons according to the number of children not reading on grade level by the end of third grade? We are working with school districts, principals and parents to insure these children have books at home to practice reading.+ Read More
There are 30 books in an average income home, there is only 1 book for 300 homes in a low income area. We provide children from low income homes with a small library of their own from Pre-K to Third Grade. Each library costs $40-50 dollars and includes 10 books, 5 at the child's level and 5 books parents can read to their child. Help us help children!!
Books4Kids is purchasing new books for children from low income home that have NO books to read in their homes. Help us out!
We need to your help to get books to children from low income homes that have no books to read and will never become better readers unless they have books at home to practice reading. We give children a small home library of 10 books, 5 at their reading level and 5 books their parents can read to them. We work with Pre-K through 3rd grade because if they are not reading on grade level by the end of third grade there are horrible statistics about their future success.
