<a href="http://www.childrensvillage.org" target="_blank"style="color:#c08434;"><b>Books for Boys</a></b> is an innovative literacy initiative at The Children’s Village (CV) designed to change the lives of children through books. The Children’s Village is a residential school for 300 children from New York’s foster care system. The Village provides education, job training, and nurturing care for children whose lives have been affected by serious hardships.
Books for Boys is committed to the idea that one does well what one loves to do. With the help of a caring network of readers and mentors, the boys begin to see themselves as readers too. Books for Boys encourages these first steps, then nourishes the boys as readers. Books for Boys is about falling in love with books and becoming a lifelong reader and writer.
