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 all American children cannot afford books.
Over 50% of American children under ten years old
are racially or ethnically diverse...
but only 8% of characters in 2012 children's books.
There are more than 7000 languages in use globally. 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.
