Review for Book Worm Angels, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Book Worm Angels unites two smart ways to help donors with books they no longer want and to foster reading that is fun for kids in underserved neighborhoods: promoting thoughtful recycling and encouraging kids to develop a love of reading. BWA efficiently collects gently used kids books for leisure reading from groups and individauls and distributes them to schools so teachers can establish and maintain lending libraries for their students. It works with more than 2 million received and given in less than a dozen years: Chicago Public Schools reports that schools with BWA lending libraries in youngsters' classrooms have the best reading scores. As a trustee, I find it very rewarding to visit the schools and help teachers leverage this resource.
