Significant, peer-reviewed research in 42 countries has shown that merely having books in a home—as few as twenty—has a substantial impact on the learning trajectory of children. Even if the parents are illiterate, research indicates the presence of books in the home impacts the number of years of schooling a child will obtain!
We want children to have access to books—beginning with the Bible. We want them to love reading as much as the founders of North County Project do. With that in mind, NCP launched My Bookshelf for children in the areas where we are doing ministry. The mission of My Bookshelf is to provide children with a shelf and an age-appropriate Bible as well as a selection of timeless children’s books.
Participating children receive the bookshelf and a Bible.
