This month’s featured organization is 10 Books A Home.
“The mission of 10BH is to encourage literacy and reading among pre-elementary aged children and their families living in under-resourced communities.”
10BH provides an afterschool home tutoring program called Living-room Literacy (LL) which teaches children to read and encourages parent participation.
Here are just a few examples of what 10 Books A Home can do for an underprivileged child:
Increased motivation to use books as a source of entertainment
Improved preschool performance
Overcoming speech disabilities
Improved language and writing abilities
As a result of their good work, 10BH recently made their TV debut on ABC news. Check out more on their website at http://www.10booksahome.org!!
