BRING ME A BOOK
Bring Me A Book (BMAB) provides resources, training and support for children, teachers, parents and guardians/caretakers living in predominately low-income, at-risk communities. We promote and provide guided literacy and learning activities, in addition to language and cognitive skills development. BMAB's professional development for teachers and staff expands and enhances parent engagement and bonding with their child.
Bring Me A Book’s mission is straight-forward: to implement a “One Neighborhood At A Time” strategy that targets high need communities identified by the California First 5 Commission, First 5 LA, and LA Universal Preschool as communities with critical need for preschool, early learning, and parent resources.
BMAB- Southern California provides the fundamental programs developed by BMAB - Bookcase Libraries, First Teachers and Take Home Books. They also offer professional development and coaching for early childhood teachers, assistants and staff.
This nationally recognized program strengthens SBCC’s Child Development and Early Education impact area by providing PWW teachers, volunteers, parents and caregivers with early literacy material, lessons and trainings that help prepare children for future success.
