One billion children suffer from book hunger. Books are too expensive, too few, or simply not being published in the languages they speak.
Half of America's children cannot afford to buy books.
In 2012, most babies born in America were racially or ethnically diverse, but only 8% of characters in new children's books.
There are more than 7000 languages in use. Fewer than one percent have a vibrant children's publishing industry.
Sourcing or creating great books is just the first step. The bigger challenge is actually delivering them to readers.
