Big Book




Young, Black & Lit is partnering with teachers across the country to provide support for their students during this unprecedented time. We are providing books to help students build their home libraries and WE NEED YOUR HELP!


​How Does It Work:

1. A teacher will identify a set of books from Young, Black & Lit's Book Bank to provide to each of their students;

2. Young, Black & Lit will create a fundraising page to raise money to provide the books at no cost to the students or their families;

3. Teachers will share the pagewith their personal networks. Spread the word. Raise money. Reach the goal!

4. Young, Black & Lit will mail books directly to each student once the fundraising goal has been met! 



About Ms. Rizio's Class

My name is Louise Rizio and I am a fourth grade teacher at King Arts School in Evanston. I have the best group of students ever! The children in my class LOVE to read and get excited when they have the chance to get a new book! This group of students definitely likes a lot of the fantasy/sci-fi/superhero stuff (as do I!) but they also like realistic and historical fiction too. This class loves reading books together with friends and frequently will write the "sequel" or a story based on what they read. The class really has a true enthusiasm for reading, I cannot think of another group of kids who would appreciate this opportunity more! Thank you.
