Our Work

Read to Them programs show schools and families the wide array of benefits that come from reading aloud together. A child’s positive relationship with literacy provides the basis for a lifetime of learning. Our school-wide reading programs support reading together at home and learning together at school by providing schools with the necessary tools, resources, and guidance to create a culture of literacy in their community.

Mission

We use the power of reading aloud together to build connections across families, schools, and communities to cultivate students’ learning and success.

Vision

A culture of literacy in every community.

Our Impact

Since One School, One Book was launched in 2002, our family literacy programs have expanded to suit district and state-wide needs. It is our shared belief in the value of childhood literacy that has made each of these strides possible.
