Can you envision a world of families reading and succeeding together? What if you could make that vision a reality?
Join BookSpring as an advocate for our Central Texas 20 Books by 2020 Campaign. Studies show that as few as 20 books in the home is a predictor of three more years of education. Reading aloud helps build young brains and develops language and emotional skills in young children.
In Central Texas, there are approximately 300,000 children under the age of 12. About 80,000 of these children are low income. Our Central Texas Reading Survey is reporting that 60% of low-income families in Central Texas, and nearly 35% of all families, have less than 20 books at home.
We can do better…together!
