About Us

A non-profit organization supporting literacy programming anchored by Cincinnati's favorite children's bookstore!  Buy a book through the Blue Manatee Literacy Project and we'll donate one to a disadvantaged reader.This means that for every book purchased in our store, through our website, over the phone or at an off-site event, a book is donated to a disadvantaged reader. Our mission is to empower every young reader with the skills, resources and inspiration to succeed.

BMLP focuses on improving the chances for literacy success among children aged 4-8, those years spanning pre-K to grade 3, where a critical need exists to reach and assist children who have not had access to the vital combination of books and appropriate instruction, what we call Curated Literacy. Despite recent improvements, close to 40% of children entering kindergarten in disadvantaged neighborhoods struggle to read at grade level, with 3/4 of those students remaining at similar risk by grade 3.
