We are celebrating our 20th anniversary, and wrote a book! More info here.

Thank you for your continued support of Books for a Better World! Though the pandemic kept us from delivering books in 2020, we were able to contact many of the schools we have visited. Directors were happy to be remembered and expressed gratitude and hope for our continued support. We are anxious to resume travel in Summer 2021 and to once again fill school shelves with new books and young minds with a love of reading!

Also, we wrote a book! To celebrate Books for a Better World turning 20 in 2020, we wrote an inspiring bilingual children’s book, La mochila de sueños - Backpack of Dreams. It’s about an equally inspiring woman, Kae Robb, founder of Books for a Better World. Her dream to share the joy of a good book and the power of literacy with children in Central America lives on through volunteers and donors like yourself. Illustrations by Phoenix artist Jan McLaughlin help bring the story to life.
