What Is Kids Like Us?

Kids Like Us is a non-profit organization dedicated to the literacy learning of children in city schools. We do research, professional development, and advocacy to promote culturally relevant instruction and to ensure that children have access to books in which they can see themselves, their families, and their communities represented and valued when learning to read and write.
