Our Impact

News & Notes

"Make sure you're prioritizing what's important, bonding with that baby, loving that baby, enjoying that baby, reading, teaching, singing, loving that little one."

"To me, literacy is a core social driver of health given that it impacts your access to so many of the other social drivers. A child’s early literacy skills lay the foundation for how they will do in school, their potential for graduation, which impacts their ability to get a job with fair wage and benefits like health insurance, access to loans and homeownership, and ability to mitigate the impacts of environmental racism."

"Because these books have an impact on how we think… When these attitudes take root, they take root in childhood. And a lot of times they come through the books that we hand to children."
