According to the NAEP 82% of low-income kids cannot read at grade level by the fourth grade, and two-thirds of them will end up in jail or on welfare.

Traveling Stories is here to inspire a love of reading to children; transforming reluctant readers into confident ones. We are here to outsmart poverty one book at a time.
