About

Word Rebel’s partnership model gives parents the tools they need to teach children vocabulary from birth. To reach children before preschool, we partner with subsidized daycares serving children (age 0 – 4) living in poverty in New York City. We ship our daycare partners high quality books to build children’s home libraries. Every donated book serves as an incentive for parents to enroll in an entire year of literacy emails and evidence-based Ready4K text messages – proven to increase parent reading engagement and children’s vocabulary and reading skills. Every week for a year, parents receive easy strategies to teach vocabulary on-the-go – despite limited time, resources, and other socioeconomic barriers.
