Most U.S. poor families have zero books at home – poor infants hear 30 million fewer words – there are 1 million homeless students – 35,000 moms and kids will sleep in a domestic abuse shelter tonight. Millions more readers are waiting, worldwide.
You can help literacy end poverty. Everything begins with reading. With titles for every age, interest, and language, mags and comics are the most powerful literacy engines on the planet.
