What is Booktober?

Did you know that 1 in 7 adults cannot read or write? And did you know that if a child has not achieved basic literacy skills by the third grade it becomes almost impossible for him or her to catch up? The good news is that this month you can help change the story, and we’re going to give you all the tools you need to make it happen.

Booktober is a month-long campaign to raise funds and awareness for global literacy, because every child deserves the chance of a brighter future. Join us, and help make this Booktober one for the books.
