Share the Love of Reading

Share your favorite book and help ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to learn to read and write.

When books are opened you discover that you have wings.
— Helen Hayes

Think about your favorite book – what makes it your favorite?

Is it how the characters seem to leap off the page and speak directly to you? Does it inspire you to consider life or a particular topic in a whole new way? Or maybe it's the way the author's imagination transports you to another time and place?

We share your love of reading, and yet we struggle with the reality that more than 36 million Americans cannot read at the most basic level. Imagine living your whole life in America and not being able to read a note from your child's teacher or read well enough to complete a job application. Imagine having never experienced the inspiration that comes from reading a good book.

Join us today and share the love of reading by sending a personalized card recommending one of your favorite books to a friend.

For each book shared, we'll grow the community of people dedicated to helping the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy ensure that all Americans are provided with the opportunity to learn to read. Come back and visit this page often to share more books with more friends. Together, we'll bring awareness to the reality of illiteracy in our country – and help transform the lives of millions.
