Our Mission


I believe books are powerful and can help us to develop our imagination and allow us to dream and think in ways that we would have never thought possible.

I’m thankful for my 5th grade teacher who introduced me to Ramona the Brave during Story Time. It was the beginning of my love affair with books and reading.

Part of our mission is to make a positive difference for young readers by promoting literacy and a love of reading while also helping to support children in foster care.


My hope is that more young people will be inspired to read books of all genres.

We use the proceeds from our Candle of the Month sales to buy new books for children in foster care in Gwinnett County.

We purposely buy multiple copies of the same book because we believe it is important for each child to have their very own book(s) that they don’t have to share. We hope to one day be able to donate not only to foster children in Gwinnett county, but all counties in Georgia.
