"I had a wonderful teacher in elementary school who told me: 'read, my child, read', and I tried to read everything. I love books." - Rep. John Lewis
WHY BOOK LOVE FOUNDATION
The Book Love Foundation is dedicated to supporting teachers preK-12 who inspire a volume of reading in students both inside and outside of school. While our youngest students approach reading with excitement, by middle school and high school, research reveals more students read less and less. Not only do many students read assigned texts reluctantly (or not at all), but they turn away from voluntary reading in alarming numbers. The Book Love Foundation helps teachers create inclusive classroom libraries in order to deepen empathy and to inspire a love of reading in all students.
