Grant Description
In-kind grants of a storytelling program and new children's books to Vermont and New Hampshire nonprofit organizations or facilities that provide summer programming to children in disadvantaged populations. The program is intended to encourage children to read more often during summer vacation with lively storytelling presentations and new books that children can select and keep. CLiF presenters tell stories, read aloud from books, and share their love of words, reading, and writing. Every child who participates chooses two books to keep from a wide selection of brand-new children’s books.

CLiF Lets Children Choose Their Books!

CLiF finds that when children choose their own books, they’re more excited about reading and more likely to read for pleasure. A study by the International Literacy Association found 80% of students say the books they enjoy the most are the ones they choose themselves.
