The Isaac Bruce Foundation, in partnership with Ready Readers, donated $5,000 to purchase 800 copies of Little Quack Loves Colors and 900 copies of Slow Snail for local preschool children in January of 2014.
The IBF has now donated more than 14,000 books to underserved local preschool children. Ready Readers is a St. Louis nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire preschool-age children from low-income communities to become readers. Currently, they have 550 trained volunteers reading weekly to more than 8,000 preschool children. They also will give more than 62,000 new books to the children and their classrooms this year.
