As beautiful as cotton paper and hand-mixed inks are, the very best printing in the whole world is on the pages of children’s books.
The books we read as children make us who we are. Between my parents, my school and my local library, I had access to any book I wanted. I explored other worlds in magic school buses and tree houses and wardrobes. I was a student at Bailey School and Wayside School and Battle School and Hogwarts. I grew up at Green Gables and on the prairie and in the Lower Elements. It's how I developed the curiosity and enthusiasm and self-esteem that landed me here.
Unfortunately, a lot of kids in the U.S. don’t have the access they need to books that show them how big and wonderful the world can be. I’m grateful that Lickety Split Press is able to give all of our clients a chance to be part of a solution for improving childhood literacy in our country.
Every custom project we print gives a brand-new book to a child in need through the nonprofit Kids Need to Read, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a 97% Charity Navigator rating. And the best part? We picked this project-based donation structure because it'll hold us accountable: The more we grow, the more we'll give. This is just the beginning.
