Donate Books to Children in Need!

Succeeding Begins with Reading Book Drive


Each year Starling Agency and Blossoming Buds team up to collect books on behalf of Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program. Page Ahead is a wonderful foundation that builds awareness about the importance of early literacy in under-served/high-risk populations. Since 1990, Page Ahead has placed over 2.3 million books into the hands of 650,000 at-risk children across Washington State. Page Ahead operates on one simple and astounding fact: being read to as a child is the foremost predictor of academic success in childhood. If a child can read at grade level by 3rd grade, they will continue to read at grade level throughout their academic career. A child who succeeds in school is more likely to thrive beyond graduation. Succeeding begins with reading!


How to donate books: Deliver new/unused books (ages 0-6) to Blossoming Buds Preschool or Blossoming Buds Cottage.

If you would like to volunteer to collect books for the Succeeding Begins with Reading Book Drive, email Mandie@starlingagency.com.Blossoming Buds Preschool Seattle
