VISION: That children in every family have their own books at home so that they may become better readers, perform better in school and do better in life.
MISSION: Big Rig Books is a mobile literacy outreach initiative focused on fostering recreational reading beyond the classroom by encouraging reading and providing books for children and families in economically challenged, underserved communities and underperforming schools.
“It is obvious you value education and have a commitment to help students reach their potential. The key to success is reading and offering them books is a wonderful way to foster the importance of reading in their lives”.
Sandra Strausser, Principal
Colonial Elementary School
I checked in with a lot of students today about their Big Rig experience and they loved it. Also, I lost count of the number of students who came up to me in the hallways, after school, and other times of day to show me their books. You have truly fueled their passion for reading!
