We can’t waste this moment.
As schools reopen around the world, we must do everything in our power to help children catch up on all the learning they have missed.
In many countries where we work, families are unable to afford books for their children – no matter how much they want to. So when schools and libraries were forced to close for months on end because of the pandemic, children had nothing new to read or learn from.
Now books really can help children dream again. They will help children discover who they can be – and gain the knowledge they need to follow their dreams.
