Reached over 250,000 students in all 50 states and over 80 countries globally
Been recognized by The Library of Congress, Forbes, The International Literacy Association, Teach for America, and more
Begun to inspire a love of reading
We are constantly on the lookout for more "easy to read, hard to put down," books to support our audience of striving readers. Your words could be the start of someone else's lifelong reading journey. Sign up here to submit a story.
