PARENTS, EDUCATORS, AND COMMUNITIES ARE CRITICAL FACTORS IN A CHILD'S SUCCESS IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"
Our mission is to improve the lives of children and the moms (and dads) who love them by supporting education and literacy programs, uplifting families, and promoting social justice.
We travel to school events, community family events, and festivals to share the importance of literacy along with diverse children's book ideas for readers. Do you have a book you'd like us to include in our traveling bookshelf? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books in the home are the single biggest indicator of academic success — surpassing income, parents’ education, family composition, and all other factors.
The most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents. That's a big job!
Our community is here to help make that job a little easier by sharing success stories, helpful books, and proven resources.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." It's important that we teach and practice good citizenship. Engaged citizens stay abreast of what's happening in their community and the world as a whole. Community service is a big part of engaged citizenship as we are all responsible for giving back to our communities.
American History is a huge term. It can sound overwhelming and difficult to relate to at first glance. However, we are all an integral part of American History. It's being created everyday.
It's important for children to connect to their family's and community's history.
To understand where you're headed you must know where you come from.
