Kids to Kids℠ puts books into the hands of at-risk children so they may build home libraries. Book ownership is a critical factor in every child’s intellectual development. Far too often, the books provided through the Kids to Kids℠ program are the first books these children have ever owned.
Breakfast with Books℠ increases the awareness and importance of reading as a family activity. Each program consists of a breakfast snack, story time, raffle and the opportunity for children and their parents to select new books to keep. Basic reading strategies are reinforced, and the program fosters a love of reading in the home.
