Bring Me A Book Foundation


Bring Me A Book's mission is to provide easy access to the best children's books and inspire reading aloud to children. By providing high quality children's books and read aloud workshops to underserved communities, Bring Me A Book inspires reading aloud to children, the most important factor in determining a child's future success in reading. The Bookcase Library Program provides bookcases of age-appropriate, culturally diverse, hardback books in multiple languages to children in underserved communities. These libraries are placed in pre-schools, childcare centers, elementary schools, and community centers. The First Teachers Program workshops engage and educate parents, childcare providers and teachers on the critical importance of reading aloud to children. Through highly interactive instruction and dialogue, participants develop individualized solutions to overcome the challenges of daily read-aloud routines. Teachers can transform preschool programs by creating classroom environments that provide optimum support for language and literacy development. The Read Aloud Resource Guide is a read-aloud curriculum that enhances the ability of preschool and kindergarten teachers, teaching assistants and childcare providers to incorporate reading aloud in their classrooms and daily experiences to support emergent literacy skills and school readiness.
