Kids to Kids is the flagship program of Spread the Word Nevada. It allows us to put 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.
During the initial distribution at an adopted school, all pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students receive a drawstring backpack that serves as a “safe-keeping” place for storing their book collection. Five new and gently used books are selected at this kick-off celebration, and then, once a month, one additional book is selected to add to their libraries.
