The Encourage Literacy Program- JK Noble Foundation- Free Books For Students

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

Attention students, teachers, and faculty members, JK Noble's foundation is launching The Encourage Literacy Program, starting with the first book of the HALE series, The Rise of the Griffins!

And that means... you get free books!

I'm sure you're wondering if there's a catch—after all, nothing is truly free. You're wrong! There is no catch.

Across the world are children of all backgrounds with eager minds, but not all have the resources they need to thrive. As scientists would relay, variables greatly affect the subject. As people who care for children, we know we cannot control all variables that someone might be subjected to. There will always be issues in the environment, nutrients, subjection to unhealthy personalities, and the requirements of bare necessities like clothes, for example. We can hardly control the variables in our own surroundings! writes, "An estimated 356 million children live in extreme poverty." writes, "More than 393 million children have failed to gain the basic literacy skills at age 10 since world leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015, according to a new analysis tool launched today."

As we know, these are not the only shocking statistics about the subject. Not giving our children all that we can forces them to continue spiraling down, and their children after them.

If we want a better tomorrow, we must start today.

Tools should be available for the children of tomorrow. The children of the United States and across the world should have resources to help them obtain a stable and positive future. It is a hard task, especially for teachers who want to give their all to their students. Amazing programs that help teachers and faculty members achieve this goal set their students toward success.

I remember as a child, the things that made me happiest were things I could escape to, like stories that inspired me, whether on television or in a book. The characters I related to gave me the courage I needed to become the woman I am today. As we know, sharing stories was the beginning of passing down knowledge, and from this came literacy in all its fabulous forms. Not every kid can get behind a textbook and gleefully relay the information within. But all kids hold dear the stories of the characters that speak to their hearts, including epic stories about life outside this world, stories about myth and magic!

Education is so broad, and kids are eager to learn. Why not give them a story worth reading, a story that inspires their developing characters for years to come, one that is parent approved?

HALE: The Rise of the Griffins

A Young Adult Fantasy novel, for ages 12 and up.

“Never take off your amulet. It is the only thing

protecting you now.”

Hale wants to heed his sister’s warning, spoken through bloody teeth, but he cannot hide from destiny. Losing the amulet sends Hale into a violent, magical world that reveals the truth: he isn’t a human at all, but a griffin with supernatural talents.

While Hale struggles to fit into his new role as a griffin, he finds an ally in Bayo, the all-powerful Griffin King and the leader of the Griffin Clan. Hale doesn’t know why Bayo has taken such a keen interest in him, or why the king seems strangely familiar, but as they grow closer, Hale can’t deny their connection.

Desperate for answers, Hale begins looking into why he and many other young griffins were brought to the Griffin Clan, as well as the truth about his family and his connection with King Bayo.

Soar into Hale: The Rise of the Griffins, a world full of magnificent shapeshifters, manipulative telepaths, a soul-stealing witch, woodland demons, nymphs, a young prophet, and the vessel of a man-killing siren.

English teachers and principals across the U.S. can request HALE: The Rise of the Griffins for their students who are in eighth grade. All you have to do is click here. Or send a direct email to
