Join our Call to Action:

Over 75% of America's disadvantaged children are not reading on grade level, and most will never catch up without our help. Help us protect their futures and ensure their dreams are within reach.

In America, millions of children fall further behind during the summer reading slide which is responsible for most of the learning gap between rich and poor. Covid has exacerbated the situation tremendously. Economic prosperity requires that we ensure our children can read. Literacy is at the heart of human progress and kids realizing their dreams in adulthood.
You can make a difference today and help put a home library into the hands of every American K-5 student. Every child enrolled in our program receives award winning, popular books THEY choose all summer long. Tucked in each book is a Discovery Sheet of fun learning activities based on the book that helps new readers expand their thinking to the world around them, improving comprehension, not just literacy.
Over the last decade, Kids Read Now has put millions of new books in kids’ hands. This has increased family engagement activities and resources for schools serving children from low-income communities in 30 states and made kids’ dreams one step closer to reality.
Together, we can ignite the love for reading in children. Help us remove barriers so kids in need can learn, grow, and thrive. It’s more than combatting summer learning loss. We encourage families to brighten their students’ and their communities’ futures with books. Kids Read Now… Kids’ Dreams Delivered.
