Did you know?

For each book you purchase in our online bookstore, we match your purchase by providing a book to a child to promote literacy.

Shockingly, even in our prosperous, thriving society, we have an illiteracy crisis:

  • 14 percent of Americans are considered Illiterate.
  • 36 percent of people worldwide can’t read at an 8th grade level in their native language.
  • 85 percent of people who commit criminal offences in the United States are considered to be illiterate.
  • Over 19 percent of all high school graduates in the United States cannot read.
  • There is a direct link between literacy, crime, poverty and divorce.
  • And... these statistics have not changed in the past 10 years!
Let's fix this together!

The mission of the GoRead team is to give children the motivation to read, the desire to read and the ability to read.
