We Booked Up Summer In Seattle!

THE STORY:

I am raising money so all eligible Seattle schools get 12 free new books a summer for every kid between kindergarten and second grade. Your gift will support Page Ahead's Book Up Summer program in Seattle Public Schools. You can learn more about Book Up Summer here.

When we give kids 12 free new books that they choose and keep for the summer, we prevent summer reading loss and close the achievement gap. Studies from the University of Nevada and the University of Tennessee prove it. Last year, when kids from eligible schools in Seattle got 12 new books of their choice to keep and read over the summer, they closed the reading achievement gap by 77% between first and second grade. Like smallpox and polio, there is a vaccine for illiteracy: 12 books a summer. Interested in sponsoring a specific school or in multi-year support?  Please click here for more information.

Thank you for your support!
