This is a major fundraiser for SSI Literacy and supports programs like “1,000 x 5” early learner reading program which gives the Island’s youngest members access to as many books as possible. It is based on the belief that if a child hears 1,000 books by the age of 5, they are much better prepared to enjoy and succeed in learning.
