BRING ME A BOOK – Bringing Books to Children at Home and at School

BMAB - The Reading Express

Funded by the COMMUNITY

Linked by PARTNERS

Fueled by VOLUNTEERS

Children who have not developed basic literacy skills by the time they enter school are three to four times more likely to drop out in later years.

There is a ratio of one book for every 300 children in low-income neighborhoods compared to a ratio of 13:1 in middle-income neighborhoods.

Two-thirds of U.S. fourth graders are not proficient readers according to National Reading Assessment data.

What does Bring Me A Book do?

BMAB - Helping Families Read

We provide books to children, through non-profit partnerships, for home and school. Our partners direct the books to families and children who need them the most while supporting parents in using the books to help build their children’s literacy skills.

We select and purchase the best children’s books at the best prices. Bring Me A Book selects books from literacy experts’ lists of the finest books published and purchases them at deeply reduced pricing.

We engage volunteers in order to minimize administrative costs. Our Book Buddy volunteers read and gift books to classrooms and homes.

We are able to direct the majority of our financial support toward the purchase of books for under-resourced families and schools because we are a volunteer driven organization.
