MISSION STATEMENT

traveling stories logoWe empower kids to outsmart poverty by helping them fall in love with reading by the 4th grade!

We do that with weekly popup StoryTents. Kids visit the StoryTent, pick out books and then read with a volunteer. They earn Book Bucks for reading, which they can spend on prizes. Kids are becoming confident readers and they’re also learning basic money management skills.
