The 1000 Books Foundation Partners with WAYB to Support Early Literacy Initiatives

Las Vegas, Nevada, November 2023 – The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce its partnership with WAYB, the innovative creators of the perfect portable car seat for everyday and travel convenience to promote the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” early literacy challenge. This collaboration aims to foster a love for reading and literacy in young children, setting a strong foundation for their future education.

WAYB’s commitment to giving back to the community and supporting childhood education has led to a generous donation, allowing libraries across the nation to access the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” complete phonics course. This comprehensive phonics course is a vital resource for libraries and educators working to encourage young children to read and develop essential phonics and reading skills.

In addition to providing access to the phonics course, WAYB is also supplying “Ready to Roam Backpacks” to select participating libraries. These backpacks can serve as incentives for children as they reach significant reading milestones in the “1000 Books Before Kindergarten” early literacy challenge. The Ready to Roam Backpacks are designed for park play dates, weekend getaways, and everything in between, these backpacks are full of thoughtfully designed compartments to keep you and your family organized while you’re on the go.

Through this partnership, the 1000 Books Foundation and WAYB aim to make a meaningful impact on early childhood education and literacy, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to explore the world of books and embark on a lifelong journey of learning.

“We are excited to partner with the 1000 Books Foundation in support of the ‘1000 Books Before Kindergarten’ early literacy challenge,” said Laura Sauls, Brand Adventure Director at WAYB. “Reading is a fundamental skill that can open doors to a world of knowledge and imagination. By providing resources and incentives for young readers, we hope to play a part in nurturing a new generation of book lovers and learners.”

The partnership between WAYB and the 1000 Books Foundation exemplifies the organizations’ shared commitment to education, community, and the well-being of children. Together, they are making a positive difference in early literacy and fostering a love for reading among our youngest citizens.
