Research shows that there is a 30 million word disparity in vocabulary by age 3 between poor and wealthy children.
These children are at a huge deficit when they start kindergarten, and the gap widens every year.
We hope to reduce this gap by providing them with books they choose for themselves and want to read.
Forever Free Books is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit mobile literacy organization that provides access to FREE books to children in need. We serve Maryland, Washington D.C. and northern Virginia.
We've also sent books to children in India, Bahamas and Jamaica.
Through our partnerships with other community organizations, we assess the needs of communities in relation to illiteracy, in order to develop programs to address the achievement gap through book distributions, tutoring and story time.
