Beyond the Books

Motivating kids to read to create a brighter future

This keynote is perfect for: high schools, colleges, government based events, women's groups, community groups, leadership development, entrepreneurs

Studies show that children who are not reading on grade level by the fourth grade are exponentially more likely to drop out of high school, experience poverty, enter the criminal justice system, and stay illiterate the rest of their lives.
Last year, over 60% of students in America were not meeting this milestone.


Motivating kids to read is the catalyst for creating lasting change in the community.

Kassi Kincaid is the founder of Book Days- an innovative children’s literacy program focused on bringing books to life to encourage a love of reading in children. Fueled by her love of children’s literature, she brought children's books to life through community events, and a YouTube channel that pairs children's books with real world adventures. Over the years, the program has received recognition from corporations such as Whole Foods, Flex, and SeaWorld. In addition, Kassi speaks all around the world helping audiences discover the value of reading to ignite a brighter future for the next generation.
