Every April, One Book Colorado distributes over 75,000 copies of the same book across Colorado, to be given to 4 year olds. The program began as an effort to provide Colorado children with access to books that promote early literacy. Research shows that preschoolers who have access to books at home will perform better in kindergarten, which in turn has an important impact on the rest of their education.
