Dolores Kohl Education Foundation

StoryBus is an innovative, hands-on early childhood literacy museum on wheels that visits schools in Chicago’s low-income neighborhoods. It has been a teachers’ favorite since 2001. StoryBus builds an enthusiasm for literature and a foundation in emergent literacy skills among Chicago's children.

“My students are not afforded many family outings. StoryBus opens the door to a true literacy-sharing parent-child activity. Bringing StoryBus to those families helps them gain new understanding of books and reading and vocabulary development.”

—Deborah Domain, Haugan School
