Bess the Book Bus is a mobile literacy outreach dedicated to sharing the joy of reading and building home libraries for underprivileged children and families across the USA.

The 2014 Success is in Sight tour will serve 25,000+ kids in 35 states. We hope to give away 100,000 new books.
Many of Bess’ kids will also have access to free comprehensive eye exams and free glasses fitted with Transitions Lenses thanks to our partners at Transitions Optical.
