What problem does your solution solve?
Literacy is one of the most important cornerstones of childhood development, yet millions of children across the world do not have access to books to help them achieve a baseline level of proficiency in reading. Not only is reading a crucial factor of early literacy skills, but reading aloud to children also significantly increases these skills. Bedtime with Books has, and will continue to impact(ed) thousands of children on a routine basis. Not every child enjoys reading. But as reading is such an important aspect of early development, creating a means to transform a child’s attitude towards reading is crucial. During Bedtime with Books events, children enjoy stories in the company of their friends/class- mates, and the readers make the stories an interactive experience.
What’s the market potential for your solution?
Schools and Organizations in need of programming for young children, specifically K-3rd graders.
How will you make money?
Bedtime with Books is a charitable non-profit, therefore, obtaining a profit is not the main goal of the program.
What kind of partners will you need to make, support and distribute your solution?
Sponsorships from publishing companies for discounts on book orders, and from organizations that supply the products for the art projects in the BwB boxes.
What will your expenses include?
Books, supplies for the art project, the box, and the pillow (given as a souvenir).
