It's almost the end of the year, and you can help the Virginia Children's Book Festival turns children into lifelong readers! Did you know that reading is called the "hidden success factor?" No matter their background, children who read for pleasure and stick with it are more likely to flourish in higher education, the workplace, and all throughout life. With our Hip Hop in Children's Literature initiative, special programming for non-verbal children with autism, our technology and reading programs, free book distributions, and completely free annual festival, the VCBF's mission is to create lifelong readers reaches more almost 20,000 children a year. Won't you help us start 2019 strong?
