THE STORYTENT

Created by Traveling Stories in 2011, the StoryTent program is for kids 2-12 years old and takes place every week at the City Heights Farmers Market and Parkway Plaza Mall in El Cajon. Kids read one-on-one with volunteers and earn Book Bucks, which can be redeemed for prizes.

#Children Empowered

82% of kids from low-income households in the U.S. cannot read at grade level by the 4th grade. And 2/3 of these kids will either end up on welfare or land in jail.*

Research indicates that reading habits have more influence on educational attainment than socio-economic status or having a parent with a degree.
