Honorable Mention, Innovations in Reading Prize, 2016

LGBT Books to Prisoners receives an honorable mention
Honorable Mention, 2016 Innovations in Reading Prize
Traveling Stories is dedicated to helping kids fall in love with reading by the fourth grade. We set up StoryTents at farmers markets in low-income neighborhoods and offer free reading support. At the StoryTent, children read with volunteers, their parents or other children. For every book read, they earn a book buck, which can be redeemed for prizes. Through this, children not only become better readers but they also develop basic money management skills.
