65% of 4th graders read below grade level, contributing to 8,000 students dropping out of high school *EVERY DAY*. StoryBook Treasures mission is to turn those numbers around by putting books into the hearts, hands, and homes of children. One of our Title 1 schools has proven our mission by increasing their standardized literacy scores from 63% to 92%!

Rolling Stone Gives Inside Look at Imagination Library

Did you know that Dolly Parton's Imagination Library was founded in 1995 by Ms. Parton herself? With just a core team of 15 people, millions of books are delivered to children all over the world! Some heroes don't wear capes!

SBT research began with learning about the Imagination Library. Their research supports our mission of early literacy intervention being critical especially among children living in poverty. Dolly Parton's Imagination Library services children from birth-5 years old. Where the Dolly's mission ends, that's where SBT begins providing books and literacy enrichment to children in grades PK-3rd grade. Together we are servicing all critical milestones in a child's early reading journey.

Rolling Stone highlights the work of affiliates and partners behind Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. #ImaginationLibrary #RollingStone

What makes our literacy program for KINDERGARTEN through THIRD grade different?

It starts with a BOOK -not a photocopy stapled together, not a digital screen, but a real book for EVERY student. We provide a five-day lesson plan, creative play, math and science dialogues when appropriate, and work that allows the child to think beyond their age and grade level. Children may not know how to read but they do know how to think, and fostering those critical thinking skills is an integral part of our program.

Jamaican literacy activist puts more books into the hands of children isolated by COVID-19 restrictions

All over the world, educators and advocates for children are focusing on getting #RealBooks into the hands of children. We know children learn best from actual paper and hardback books. Digital books are not as easily shared, and the success of programs like StoryBook Treasures is that the kids can bring the books home to their families and everyone can share them.

"For children who were reading before and continue to have access to books, the pages have been a safe place from the pandemic. For others, the situation has worsened."

The beloved author and illustrator drew more than 70 books for kids — often about friendly bugs like that famous caterpillar. He said he got his inspiration from nature walks with his father.

It wasn't easy but we did it: Distance Learning Kits.
Our AMAZING volunteers packaged and bundled and worked to get distance learning kits ready for delivery to students. Sometimes we could get them to the schools, sometimes books were delivered by USPS. No matter how we had to do it, we got books into children's hands.

Our Story

Storybook Treasures’ mission is to cultivate a love of reading and books among our our nations’ children. The SBT revolutionary program is designed by teachers to foster a love of reading that begins in the classroom, extends into community and homes of children. Our unique program is implemented within the school setting by the classroom teacher and begins with putting the best books into the hands of children who need them the most. Children learn to build a home library with the program’s books and supplemental materials. This method fosters the essential home school reading connection that is vital to literacy and creates a community of readers who love books and love to read!

100% of students who use the StoryBook Treasures program increase reading comprehension, the love of reading and build a strong school to home reading connection.

Thank you very much Storybook Treasures for this gift, which is not only a book, it is also a world of learning. We started a few days ago to read this book with my three year old daughter and it is being a great experience.
They were so excited every time a box was delivered. "Is that our new book?" SBT was a big hit here in Alaska!!
Thank you!!
Thank you Denise Kofoid Corbo and StoryBook Treasures for our books and T-shirts!
