Getting books into homes is an inexpensive way to help children succeed, said author Adam Ybarra. Homes with no books equate to below average literacy skills."

"Reading is kind of a gateway to the development of academic skills across all disciplines," said Ben Domingue, an assistant professor in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University.
