Literacy for a Lifetime

Girl Reading Book Literacy for a Lifetime tm is a 50% matching grant program partnering Usborne Books & More with businesses, foundations, and individuals who support reading at organizations and schools of their choice. Reading is the heart of education! As the leading publisher of children's non fiction books, Usborne Books & More carries over 1400 Usborne and Kane Miller titles, including fiction, story books, activity books and more, where reading is fun for kids of all ages. The Literacy for a Lifetime program matches any corporate or individual donation or grant that purchases books from Usborne Books & More with an additional 50% in free books. For example, when a corporation donates $10,000 in books from Usborne Books & More to a local elementary school, Usborne Books & more will donate an additional $5,000 in books to the school.
