We are losing whole generations of children who are able to recognize or care about literature and learning that is good and beautiful. We are also facing generations of children who are flooded with books that model disrespect and low character. Our overarching mission is to help draw children and families to learning and books that are clean, promote high character, and create strong and faithful minds and hearts. There is so much joy to be found in rich, uplifting literature. Join us in our journey!
