How we give: The Book-for-Book Promise

For every book we sell, we donate one to a child in need. Book for book. Child for child. It's our promise.

How our giving works:

Tally

Every year, we total the number of books that were sold across all channels (direct sales, trade stores, specialty accounts, e-commerce—everything!) Every book counts.

Ship to partners

We ship an equal number of books to our literacy partners, who include teachers, librarians, nonprofits, and literacy foundations. Usually, we print books specially formatted for this purpose. Other times, we pull from our Bushel & Peck inventory.

Distribute worldwide

Some of our partners, like teachers and librarians, hand out books to individual students and families that they know need books most. Larger partners ship books to centers around the world where they are needed most.

Become a giving partner

If you believe in the power of books, we'd love to work with you!

Teachers & Librarians

If you work with underprivileged kids, or if your school or library is facing critical funding issues, we'd love to provide some books.
