  • 61% of families dealing with financial instability lack books in the home for children. We’re aiming to fill that gap and improve the odds for these children. 
  • Reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade is the single most important indicator for a child's success.  
  • In 2022, only 60.4 percent of Idaho’s third graders were reading at grade level, according to the Idaho Reading Inventory. 
  • Students in families experiencing a low-income have greater summer learning loss than their peers in higher-income families. 
  • Providing a wealth of books to children in families experiencing financial instability can help break the link between poverty and poor academic outcomes.
