The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.

Book Book Go, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded in 2015 as Bring Me A Book St. Louis, strives to improve early childhood literacy and inspires children to read every day with their families. We focus on providing award-winning and inspirational hardbound books to children in underserved neighborhoods. The books we provide spark imaginations and improve attitudes about reading in a child’s early childhood years and beyond. Our mission strives to eliminate the literacy gap and encourage children to have fun reading everyday. We strive to choose books that mirror the communities we serve. We accomplish our literacy goals by allowing children across Missouri and Illinois to choose new curated books from our Book Bus Bookmobile.
Book Book Go delivered over 20,000 books to children last year. We have also given over 1000 wooden ‘Book Box’ Home Libraries to children in underserved communities in Missouri and Illinois.
