The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.

Bring Me A Book St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Missouri corporation committed to eliminating the literacy gap through selecting & procuring new hardback children’s literature for under-resourced children to read aloud at home and school. We are an independent affiliate of Bring Me A Book Foundation founded in 1997 in Silicon Valley, California. The other independent affiliates are located in Franklin County Florida and Hong Kong. Bring Me A Book St. Louis is continually striving to build an organization that is unique to the metropolitan area and utilizes the best practices in early childhood education that we have been perfecting since 1997. We have developed three early childhood literacy programs for children ages pre-kindergarten through first grade designed to prepare them for reading success: Classroom Libraries; Take Home Books; and First Teacher Parent Workshops.
