John Butler – 3 Books and a Backpack

According to the Pew Report, 37% of Philadelphia’s children are living below the poverty line. These staggering statistics are making it increasingly difficult to combat the literacy issues that continue to plague young readers. A lack of books that feature African-American characters creates a further disconnect, as there is a natural inclination for children to want to read about characters that they can relate to. With first grade being a crucial time to ensure that children are interested in reading, this initiative to provide a school with inclusive books from local authors will have an immediate impact.Not only will the students involved benefit from your generosity, but the community as a whole.
