ResultsLiteracy Partners addresses the two biggest factors predicting reading proficiency and school reading among young children: the number of books in the home and the frequency of parents reading with their children. The children of our students benefit immediately: they demonstrate nearly double the rate of growth on preschool assessments of early childhood development compared to their peers in the same class whose parents were not in our program.
Supporting Books of Their OwnThe program is offered in partnership with the leading publishers and relies on the generous support of foundations and many individual donors. Please consider a donation of children’s books to help us grow the program to reach more low-income and immigrant families. By providing books, you will have a lasting impact on families throughout New York City by helping parents build a better future for themselves and their children. We are committed to only providing high-quality, diverse, educational, and entertaining books to our families. With this in mind, we can only accept new books. We cannot accept books that are dirty, damaged, have markings, wear or discoloration, or that have explicit language or content.
