Thank you for your generous donation to the One Book
Colorado - A Book for every 4-year-old program!
Your donation helps us purchase 75,000 copies of the same book and
distribute them to each 4-year-old in the state in English and
Spanish through public libraries, Denver Preschool Program
classrooms, and other literacy-rich environments.
The privately-funded program is a collaboration between Serve
Colorado, the Colorado Office of Early Literacy, Colorado State
Library, the Denver Preschool Program, Denver7, Mile High United Way,
public and military libraries statewide, the private sector, and the
nonprofit and foundation communities. Modeled after the successful
Preschool One Book, One Denver program, both programs stem from the
idea that providing young children with access to books promotes
early literacy skills and helps families serve as their children’s
first and most important teachers.
Research shows that 4-year-olds that have access to books and
adults that read to them often will be much more likely to be ready
to read when they start kindergarten. For low-income families, access
to quality books and early literacy efforts are even more important
as research shows that children in low-income families tend to have
fewer books in their homes and are exposed to 30 million fewer words
before the age of four than their higher-income peers. One Book
Colorado aims to close this vocabulary gap by getting a book into the
home of every four-year-old in Colorado and fostering a culture of
