Thank you for the 600 books we gave away at Shadow Butte Literacy Night 2019! We can't say thank you enough.
A HUGE thank you from Shadow Butte Elementary! We gave away 600 books to children who attended our Literacy Night with the Treasure Valley Avengers and Gary Hogg Children's Book Author. Thank you for this amazing gift you give to children whose families often cannot afford books. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
On behalf of children birth to three in North Idaho, thank you #Bookitforwardidaho for your generous book donation of 400 books!!! 🤗 We are thrilled that we can offer books to our families. Your help makes our literacy challenge possible.

Did you know that in low income homes, there is 1 book per 300 children?! Even if these kids do well in school, they do not have the resources (books) at home to become successful readers. Reading proficiently at the end of 3rd grade is the most significant indicator of success in school, high school graduation, and post secondary education.

Many thanks to Cristianne with Lee Pesky Learning Center for providing hundreds of copies of her book, A Dog Named Bronco, to Boise Schools students.

She will be distributing books at Garfield Elementary School, Whittier Elementary School and Morley Nelson Elementary School in the coming weeks.

This will help these students with reading & literacy and inspire them to write and express themselves!

Thank you Cristianne!

We are so grateful for donors who deposit books in our collection bins! The West Treasure Valley Family YMCA recently received these fabulous books!

And we are so grateful for The Y employees who clean and sort and then distribute the books to kids who have little access to books at home. Thank you, West and Caldwell locations!

Keep on reading Family Medicine Residency of Idaho - Nampa Program! We just delivered 750+ books for ages baby to 6th grade. Doctors and nurses will insure children take home a book to keep for their very own.

This will help improve literacy, parent-child interactions and bonding, and spark imagination and creativity. And you thought it was just a book!

Our friends at Barnes & Noble are generous beyond words! They have donated 16 boxes of books and interactive toys and we are amazed.

There are truly amazing young people in our state and Ruthie in Idaho Falls is one of the best! She held a free book fair at Dora Erickson Elementary School in Idaho Falls, making sure each student found their own treasure.

Congratulations on a great project serving your community!

This story has had quite a bit of press, but nonetheless it is pretty amazing! Listen to Scott Simon on NPR interview Boise's very own 8-year-old "viral" author!

And speaking of kids writing books, check out author Cristianne Lane's efforts to teach Boise school kids how to write their own books, with ArTPacks and books donated by Book it Forward Idaho!

This 8-year-old's book is a hit at his library. He offers advice for aspiring authors Dillon Helbig wrote a book over winter break and slipped it onto a local library shelf in Boise, Idaho. After librarians found it, they entered it into their catalog. Now it's on a long waiting list.

We salute the great students at Meridian Technical Charter High School, especially Madeline a student leader who organized a book drive for us! They collected almost 400 books!

We so appreciate their service to get books to kids who have little to no access to books at home. Literacy is a key indicator of success (in life) for kids and having books in the home is a key piece of the puzzle to becoming proficient readers.

Want to help get books to kids and empower them to write a book themselves?

We just contributed to this GoFundMe campaign to get A Dog Named Bronco, and a reading specialist into Boise schools to do just that!

Thanks to our donors, we were able to give 100 mostly new books to Burley Public Library, to honor Fred Wood for State Representative.

Based on his very impressive policy track record, he creates real change for Idaho kids. His 2021 Kids Matter Index score is 100%, and he is helping to ensure a bright future for ALL our children, by advocating for education funding and early learning.

Many thanks to Idaho Children are Primary for recognizing Rep. Wood's contributions!

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is key to raising kids who are caring, empathetic, and able to deal with their emotions in a healthy way.

Our donors are so generous to share their gently-used books and to buy new books. We are especially excited to receive Spanish language books for the many ESL students. Parents can participate in reading to their children, and also learn along the way.
