We want the whole world reading! Visit Literacy Ambassadors for Details
We know that children who have not been exposed to books before beginning formal schooling are at a heartbreaking disadvantage once they enter a classroom. At Bookworm Babies, our dream is for every parent to read, impact, nurture, and converse about books with children. Conversational book-sharing is not only one of the easiest ways to raise a child to be a critical thinker and a lover of stories, but spreading this knowledge means that we can work together toward closing the global achievement gap.
Countless hospitals, pediatric offices, daycares, libraries, preschools, charities, and organizations are gifting Bookworm Babies to all the infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in their care. Join the movement and help us spread the nurturing benefits of The Bookworm Babies Method.
Together we can work to bring conversational book-sharing to every infant, toddler, and preschooler in our global community.

Raising a Reader is an organization working "to end the cycle of low literacy by helping families develop high impact home reading routines that lay the groundwork for a lifetime of learning,
Their goal is to close the literacy opportunity gap among children ages birth to age six in high-need communities by helping families develop and practice shared home reading habits.
Their vision is to make interactive reading a joyful and rewarding routine for all families. They equip parents to be their child’s first teacher, empowered to be active participants in their child’s education, impacting success in school and beyond."
"Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Through Little Free Libraries, millions of books are exchanged each year, profoundly increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.
One of the most successful ways to improve the reading achievement of children is to increase their access to books, especially at home. But 61% of low-income families do not have any age-appropriate books for their kids at home. Little Free Libraries play an essential role by providing 24/7 access to books (and encouraging a love of reading!) in areas where books are scarce."
