We believe children’s books have the power to make the world a better place: Books open minds to limitless possibilities, spark curiosity and strengthen bonds.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, CBB distributed more than 60,000 books to children across the Portland metro area. In a time where public education is hampered by COVID, it's never been more important for children to have access to books in their homes to enjoy, but also to increase vocabulary and early reading skills, foster critical early brain development, create a love of reading, and support parent-child bonding.
“We discovered a variety of books and many wonderful authors. These books are an amazing gift; it allowed us to strengthen our bond and go on many adventures together. Watching my son’s love and excitement grow with every turning page reignited my love and excitement for reading.” —A Head Start parent
