WHAT WILL WE DO?
1000 Book Boxes
1000 St. Louis Homes
Take a look at our work in three
1000 BOOK BOXES
- Custom designed book-boxes that include children’s literature and posters published by St. Louis authors and illustrators, that value the images and interests of Black children.
- We make available fun, creative, and engaging early literacy activities that are aligned with national learning standards.
- The highlight of the campaign is our Family Style Dining Dinners where we have a dialogue with parents about how literacy is socialized within the home (listening, speaking, reading, writing and techno-browsing).
- Targeted invitations are given to families living in zip code areas with the lowest levels of 3rd grade reading proficiency.
1000 ST.LOUIS HOMES
- We encourage individuals, businesses, and organizations of good will to purchase our book-boxes for families that lack age appropriate books at home.
- We strive to connect parents to evidence based strategies and community resources that support children learning how to read.
