We want to show how books, no matter the format or genre is a needed resource, not just in classrooms and libraries, but in foster care, homeless shelters, and refugee camps. We want to raise awareness around the ‘privilege’ to have a book to read or be read to, and having accessibility to a comforting bedtime routine. A routine that many may not realize children in underserved communities don't have the fortune to experience. We'd show how volunteerism and technology combined could offer access to all.
