Why We Read

The Story Matters

Literacy is not just about reading words on a page.  It is about being able to tell your own story - your story of hope, your story of determination, your story of growth.  Reading narratives expands kids' ability to create their own narrative by giving them the language and imagination to see their way into great things. 

Diversity Matters

Stories are mirrors and windows.  Diversity in narratives give every child the ability to see themselves in stories building self-worth.  Just as important is the need for children to see the lives of others.  

Delivery Matters

There is power in passing a narrative down from one generation to the next.  Our readers bring wisdom and love to the stories, something kids remember.
