“Literacy is the first step towards freedom, towards liberation from social and economic constraints. It is the prerequisite for development, both individual and collective. It reduces poverty and inequality, creates wealth, and helps to eradicate problems of nutrition and public health.”
- Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay.
Data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) show that students who report having more books in their homes performed better academically. Specifically, while less than 15 percent of students with between 0 and 10 books scored proficient in 2015, 50 percent of students with more than 100 books did. The data and research are clear – children who have access to print reading materials have better literacy outcomes.
At Dino Nutkin LLC, we believe that it takes a village to raise a child and that it is everyone’s responsibility to raise good readers around the world. We were avid readers growing up and are grateful that we can provide plenty of books to our children. We want the same for every child in the world.
We hope to make a slight difference by donating a percent of our profits to Reading is Fundamental (RIF). Reading Is Fundamental prepares kids for a lifetime of opportunity. Through partnerships with book publishers, volunteers, community groups, organizations, and like-minded corporations, RIF has distributed more than 420 million books and impacted the lives of more than 72 million children in all 50 states, D.C. and Puerto Rico.
Thank you for supporting us on our journey!
