When you own the book, you own success.

Literacy research reports that having 20 or more books at home is a significant indicator of three more years of education for a child. Yet, a quarter of Central Texas families with children under 12 report having fewer than 20 books at home according to BookSpring’s recent benchmark study. 

BookSpring, a homegrown nonprofit focused on building literacy in Central Texas families and children, envisions that every child will have at least 20 books at home by 2010.

You can be part of our “20 books by 2020” vision—in fact, we are depending on you and your family, coworkers, friends and peers to reach this lofty goal!

There are three ways you can help spread the word about “20 books by 2020” and the importance of book ownership and reading aloud as a family.
