Our Mission:

Close the Gap, Fill the Map!

We provide free diverse books to underprivileged children or underfunded organizations in need across the United States.  We're doing our part to help close the literacy gap one state at a time.

Here to help in MA!  Love this.  Perhaps once school starts you can Skype with our class and we can all help.
