Every Child a Reader is a 501 (c)(3) charity dedicated to inspiring a love of reading in children and teens across America. By donating to Every Child a Reader you can take a much needed and appreciated step in supporting a lifelong love of reading among young people everywhere.

We achieve our goals through four popular and prestigious programs:

Children’s Book Week, celebrated every year since 1919
The National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, in partnership with the Library of Congress
The Kids’ Book Choice Awards, the only award voted on solely by kids
Get Caught Reading, a classroom poster program featuring great role models

We are a small but effective charity that reaches children and adults in schools, libraries, and at home in rural, suburban and urban communities coast to coast and year round.
