Our Solution

The Fundementals Rooted in Culture

Our mission is two-fold. We are giving children reading fundamentals, like comprehension and retention, to excel academically. At the same time, we are equipping our youngest generation with a hunger to embrace diversity. Our book selections empower children of color with characters that look like them, while exposing all families to culture.
