Literacy is one of the best predictors of a child's future success. But for a child growing up in poverty books are scarce. A child without access to books won't have the chance to become an engaged and capable reader. A child who is familiar with and enjoys books before starting school is more likely to exhibit higher language development and reading comprehension. "Only 16% of low income students become proficient readers." 1
