Testimonials

"Now more than ever, children in low-resource areas of southern Arizona need our help."

–Dr. Mary Jan Bancroft, MWFB Founder

"If every parent understood the huge educational benefits and intense happiness brought on by reading aloud to their children, and if every parent and every adult caring for a child read aloud a minimum of three stories a day to the children in their lives, we could probably wipe out illiteracy in one generation."

– Mem Fox

"My daughter is so excited about the new book she received from MAKE WAY FOR BOOKS that she has slept with it every night since she brought it home."

– Ocotillo Preschool Mom

"All of your programs are well organized, carried out with enthusiastic people, fun for everyone, and a great learning experience."

– Sharon Pittman, Director, Small World 2 Preschool

"With MAKE WAY FOR BOOKS at the table, we have someone who can provide expert information and quality early literacy services."

– Jill Morgan, UWTSA Associate Vice President of Community Development

"One of the most effective ways to help people develop their reading skills and be successful is simply to teach families about reading aloud to their children from birth on."

– Gina Macaluso, Youth Services Coordinator; Pima County Public Library, and MWFB Board President
