Peabody Elementary is joining one of the fastest growing grassroots organizations to promote early literacy among children. It’s called Books Make it Better.
- 2/3 of children living in poverty don’t have a single book at home
- The ratio of children to books in low income neighborhoods is 300 to 1
- Children read to during the first years of life are more likely to read on schedule
Drop-off gently used children’s books in the box labeled Books Make it Better.
Boxes located under PTA bulletin boards near the front office and in the cafeteria!
Deadline to participate: December 16th
