RIFSoCal would like to present Alva Sachs, award winning childrenâs author, as our featured writer of the month. Alva recently partnered with RIF-SoCal by donating her books, Circus Fever and On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! to the Boggle for Books fundraiser on May 8, 2010. RIFSoCal subsequently purchased the beautifully written and illustrated books for distribution to RIFSoCal Kids.
From the moment, Alva walked into RIFSoCalâs headquarters, we were immediately charmed. Her extensive knowledge and love of childrenâs literature and illustration sparked a lengthy conversation. Alvaâs books and her style were a perfect fit for us as she is the embodiment of the RIFSoCal mission âTo promote literacy and motivate children to read by building at-home libraries for underserved children in Greater Los Angeles.â Her books manifest the âfunâ in âfundamentalâ and capture the enthusiasm and optimism of childhood.

With public schools stretched beyond their resources, RIFSocal believes we must join together with the Los Angeles community to help inspire children’s passion for reading - the greatest gift we can give them on their personal road to success.
