The Seed to Read Literacy Program is the foundation for Children’s Books on Wheels (CBOW). Children’s Books on Wheels is a 501© (3) non profit organization established in 2004 and dedicated to promoting books, educational literature, and community resources for children pre-K through 12 grade in rural communities with limited funding. CBOW is a mobile program serving all of Montgomery County, but physically located in the low income area of Tamina, east of The Woodlands.

New and gently used book donations are always appreciated. There is a book drop off bin at the UPS store at 330 Rayford in The Woodlands.

Children are welcome to participate in the Seed to Read program every Wednesday throughout the year from 5 p.m. —  6:30 p.m. at the Sleepy Hollow Multipurpose Building. Currently 75 children attend classes after school for assistance with homework, tutoring, and reading. Free books are also available at every session.

Funding will also go toward the production of “Brooklyn” that will be performed by the Seed to Read participants on February 25. The book, written by a local author Alicia Salazar, is named after the five boroughs in New York-Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx with the promise to look toward the future with encouragement.

Tickets for Jungle Bell Rock are $25 each and available by purchasing online at or by calling Rita Wiltz, Executive Director at 281.844.7596. “We do what we can to meet the needs of the community through books and education”, Wiltz said.
