What is the Reach for the Stars program?

Reach for the Stars is a reading incentive program that challenges students to read by putting educational books into their homes. It’s simple.

  1. Friends and family members pledge money to sponsor a child’s reading during the program
  2. Kids read for a designated time period and track their reading
  3. Participants turn in their pledges and reading logs
  4. Kids are eligible to earn books and prizes for their participation at the conclusion of the program
  5. Partnering organizations may be eligible to earn free books, cash, or prizes for participating (contact us for details).

Book Drives

Do you know an individual, family, or worthy cause or organization in need of quality books? We offer a generous and flexible book drive program to help meet your needs. People can shop for books off of a wishlist that you curate for the beneficiary, they can shop for books for the readers in their lives, or they can provide monetary donations for books to be purchased for the cause. An optional virtual event can be linked to your book drive to showcase your cause and feature the books, as well. At just $250 in monetary donations or book sales, the book drive will yield 50% in free books with the use of our Literacy for a Lifetime matching grant. State sales tax exemption may apply to your book rewards order.

50% Grant Matching

Literacy for a Lifetime grant matching program

Who was PaperPie’s grant matching program designed for?

The grant matching program was designed to allow PaperPie to partner with individuals, non-profits, businesses, schools, libraries, foundations, educational institutions, etc. to be able to make the most of any grant money or Kane Miller and Usborne Book donations they may have already received.

How does Literacy for a Lifetime’s 50% matching grants work?

Please note that there is a $250 order minimum to qualify for this program and shipping is free and orders are eligible for tax exemption.

Brittany the Book Lady

I was first introduced to PaperPie (formerly Usborne Books and More) at a young age when my mom had purchased books for our family. I fell in love with the books and the company's mission to promote literacy throughout the country.​ These days I'm a stay at home mother of 2 with my own business doing what I love, while getting to spend precious time with my family. It's only been a few years in, and already I've been consistently recognized as one of PaperPie's top team leaders continuously achieving explosive team growth, helping others start their own business and achieve their dreams.
