Learning to read is critical to a child’s success—both in school and in life. Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child’s future success, but a child without access to books will not have the chance to become an engaged and capable reader. That’s where Books 4 Kids come in. Goodwill launched Books 4 Kids in 2016, which is designed to get books into the homes and hands of Arkansas children and teens who do not have access to them. Through the generosity of Arkansans, Goodwill has the supply of donated children’s books, which is distributed to students who need them through our partnerships with local schools.
