Impact

See Bedtime with Book’s 4 main areas of impact and the disparities that those impacts address:

80%

Children in Low Income Families Not Reading proficiently

4x

Students not in line with current grade-level reading four times more likely to drop out of high school

38%

Only 38% of children ages 6-8 are read to

 

Our Program

Not every child enjoys reading. But as reading is such an important aspect of early development, creating a means to transform a child’s attitude towards reading is crucial. During Bedtime with Books events, children enjoy stories in the company of their friends/classmates, and the readers make the stories an interactive experience.


 

Literacy

BwB fosters literacy in communities where children may not have access to books. By providing these resources, schools + organizations can both actively surround children with books at events, and expand their libraries or collections.

 

COMMUNITY SPIRIT

By combining the importance of reading with the enjoyment of a
group interactive activity, BwB establishes an association of reading with fun. By linking a festive gathering of friends and parents with listening to stories, BwB forms a successful connection.

Reading Aloud

BwB emphasizes the importance of reading aloud by providing an easy template for organizations/schools to follow to host a storytime event. Active literary participation is vital to ensure that children are truly progressing in their reading skills. BwB ensures that recipients of BwB boxes are committed to creating a storytime event.

 

Creativity

BwB’s art projects provide tangible reminders of the memorable experience children have at their storytime. Additionally, not all children have easy access to art supplies and the opportunity of designated time for creative expression, especially considering recent arts education cuts across the country.
