Why It's Important
Creating a text-rich environment is essential to academic success. Children need literacy building experiences both inside and outside school. More and more schools are realizing the power of ongoing book giveaways for their students. Increasing access to books has been shown to improve reading motivation and reading performance.
Why It Works
Whether its weekly, monthly, or seasonal, anytime is a great time to give children books and inspire the love of reading.
