Literacy is the dedicated purpose of Books for a Better World. We seek to inspire, to empower, and to motivate children in rural communities of developing nations by establishing libraries.

Books for a Better World was established to help break the cycle of illiteracy that cripples developing nations. Often, due to a lack of books, the school day is dull and uninteresting.  Without motivation to attend school, many children drop out and illiteracy continues.

Most children have never seen a book that is not a schoolbook, and there is little connection between learning the vowels, learning to sound out words and reading a story. Children’s literature stimulates imagination, analytical thinking, and compassion. The ability to read is empowering.

“A life filled with books is one enriched by the beauty of language and the excitement of ideas.”—Kae Robb, BBW Founder

More about this great book…
Under the orders of a peculiar coach, Mr. Gaston Champignon, eight children have formed a crazy soccer team. Their team is called Cebolletas (Chives) and the season is full of whole-hearted emotions (and a lot of sweat)! They learn many lessons along with the most important – to win you need to have FUN!
