Check out Chronicle Book's mission: "Inspired by the enduring magic and importance of books, our objective is to create and distribute exceptional publishing that's instantly recognizable for its spirit, creativity, and value.

I would love for Chronicle Books to support Raising A Reader (RAR) with this great giveaway. Their mission is to engage parents in a routine of daily “book cuddling” with their children from birth to age five to foster healthy brain development, parent-child bonding, and early literacy skills critical for school success. RAR seeks to ensure that all children will begin kindergarten with a love for books and ready to learn to read. RAR provides weekly bags of books to children's homes on weekly basis. They also provide parent training and information on how to effectively share books to promote family literacy habits, language and literacy skills, and a love of learning.
An early love of reading has shaped my entire life. Each book I read growing up has helped to shape who I am. I believe that RAR is performing such an essential service by helping to bring the magic and appreciation of books straight into children's homes, and I would love for them to have the chance to benefit from $500 worth of Chronicle Books!
