Building Home Libraries and Lifelong Readers

Bess the Book Bus serves 50,000+ kids & gives away over 75,000 books in dozens of states across the USA each year.

 We can only do this with your help!
Just one dollar provides up to three books for our kids!

Open the book and take a look at Bess’s Journey.

In 2020 during COVID-19 times Bess The Book Bus managed to give away 84,602 books to over 51,480 kids.

Bess The Book Bus has averaged 50,000+ kids served each year since 2017! Bess The Book Bus smashed that number in 2020, thanks to YOU!

With your support, we developed a physically distanced, socially engaged COVID response model and were able to continue to serve our families.

Thanks to your generosity and strong partnerships in communities across the USA, we were able to share the magic of reading and book ownership with kids in 19 states, the Navajo Nation and Burkina Faso, Africa.

Fabulous News!

We are thrilled and honored to receive recognition and funding from our amazing sponsors supporting children’s literacy!
