CHAPTER ONE · A PROMISING PARTNERSHIP
There's nothing like the joy and power of reading.
Books inspire, transport, challenge, and comfort us. They shape our lives, offer us an escape, and allow us to experience worlds beyond our own. Consider the childhood books that allowed you to experience the magic of reading. Now imagine sharing that magic with 40,000 elementary school students in Philadelphia.
This school year, you can give the gift of literacy to students across Philadelphia.
With your investment, we can ensure the joy and power of reading is within reach for every K-3 student in Philadelphia.
Cultivating a Culture of Literacy in School and at Home
Book Trust has partnered with Scholastic Book Clubs since our inception. Children choose books from Scholastic flyers every month of the school year.
Readers choose books that resonate with their interests. Books are offered in English and Spanish, and feature a diverse array of topics, characters and storylines so that all children have the opportunity to see themselves reflected on the page.
Students and teachers celebrate the arrival of books each month, inspiring a love of reading throughout the school year and summer.
Via family-focused resources, virtual and in-person read-alouds as well as home libraries, we engage entire families in reading.
Book Trust partners with the District and with the Read by 4th Campaign to effect positive change in childhood literacy rates in Philadelphia. We're supporting the District in achieving its Action Plan 3.0 goals, specifically Anchor Goal 2, which states that 100% of 8-year-old students will read on grade level.
CHAPTER TWO · REACHING EVERY STUDENT
CHAPTER THREE · SUPPORT OUR MISSION
Every child deserves to choose and own books in order to cultivate a lifelong love of literacy.
When students are given the opportunity to choose their own books, they in turn become more motivated readers.
75% of children who are not proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade are 4 times less likely to graduate high school.
Access to books supports success in the classroom and beyond.
