What the community is saying…
“Books on Wings is an amazing organization that provided a special platform to share their own love of reading and books with our Scholars. Many of our Scholars don’t have the same resources that are easily available to their more economically privileged peers so to receive a special book from an adult who simply wants them to share their joy of reading is truly a treasure. To top it all off, not only were our Scholars smiling about their new books, but they also reveled in the nameplate on the inside front cover that shared with the world this was a special gift just for them. Thank you so much Books on Wings for demonstrating how much you care about our children and about their reading development!”
-Angela Mansfield, Executive Director of Arch Academy

“Children’s literacy is crucial to their future success and so thank you to Books on Wings for giving the gift of a book to a child that will open doors to their future while improving their communities.”
– Dan Solomon
Office of Senator Al Franken
“The Books on Wings event was a transformative experience for many reasons. Our students were all able to take their learning to a deeper level through each getting their own copy of a book that will support a science unit in class. The book each child received created a lasting memory both in experience and factual knowledge that students can carry home with them and share with family and friends. A huge thank you to Books on Wings for promoting literacy, curiosity, kindness and generosity to our 3rd grade students at Partnership Academy.”
