Early Childhood Literacy Update
November was a month full of gratitude. Thanks to the support we received on #GivingTuesday, we raised funds to donate 200 books to children in need. Thank you! We are also honored to have received the James Patterson Grant earlier this month. Thanks to best selling author, James Patterson, and Scholastic Reading Club,Word Rebel has received a grant to donate 1,000 books to build 20 day care libraries in low-income housing projects throughout New York. James Patterson personally read and selected the winning recipients amongst thousands of grant applicants. We are thankful to be chosen to give more children access to high-quality books and an equal opportunity to succeed.
