If you're a Book Person, tell the world.

Books open new worlds and unlock new doors. Take the Book People Unite pledge and declare your belief in the transformative power of books, especially for young minds. Encourage your friends to join the movement too by sharing online and you'll get a download of the full Book People Unite track. We'll also follow up with news on the Book People Unite movement.

Some of America’s favorite musicians and book lovers created a song to encourage other Book People to join the cause. The track was produced by The Roots with vocal support from Jack Black, Chris Martin, John Legend, Jim James, Jason Schwartzman, Nate Ruess, Melanie Fiona, Carrie Brownstein, Regina Spektor and Consequence.

Reading lovers are coming together to help us get books into the hands of kids who need them the most. Remember visiting Narnia, playing Jumanji, and eating Green Eggs and Ham? Books can have an incredible effect on children’s lives, yet there’s only one book for every 300 kids living in underserved communities in the U.S. So we’ve brought together some of our most beloved literary characters to help make this film and rally Book People for the cause.

What are we about?

We’re bringing together people who share our love of reading to help us get books in the hands of kids who need them most. The movement recognizes the incredible effect books can have on a child’s imagination, sparking ambition, overcoming obstacles and inspiring curious minds.

RIF, the nation’s largest children’s literacy nonprofit, delivers free books and literacy resources to kids who need them most. For many of the kids RIF serves, their RIF books are their only books. They are the books that fill their hungry minds and nourish their future successes – in school and life. Since RIF’s establishment in 1966, we’ve provided 35 million kids with 400 million new, free books. Today, there are 16 million kids living in poverty in the U.S. To reach them, RIF needs you. Book People Unite.
