Your support changes lives.

At Book Trust, we believe that literacy is a human right. But in the United States, most 4th graders living in poverty cannot live at grade level. A child who cannot read proficiently by 4th grade is 4 times more likely to drop out of high school. Book Trust works to change this by providing book choice and ownership to those children who need it most, inspiring them to become lifelong readers and learners to break the cycle of poverty.
