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

About Bring Me A Book St. Louis
Bring Me A Book St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded in 2015 that strives to improve early childhood literacy and inspires children to read every day with their families. We focus on providing award-winning and inspirational hardbound books to children in underserved neighborhoods. The books we provide spark imaginations and improve attitudes about reading in a child’s early childhood years and beyond. Our mission strives to eliminate the literacy gap and encourage children to have fun reading everyday. We strive to choose books that mirror the communities we serve. Our affiliate partners are located in Hong Kong, San Francisco and Apalachicola, Florida. Bring Me A St. Louis delivered over 20,000 books to children last year and will soon give away our 1000 wooden Book Box Home Library to a child in an underserved St. Louis community.
Bring Me A Book St. Louis has developed four literacy programs designed to enhance reading skills to prepare children for reading success and improve attitudes about reading.
