The Raising A Reader mission is to foster healthy brain development, parent-child bonding and early literacy skills critical for school success by engaging parents in a routine of daily “book cuddling” with their children from birth to age five.
We have been lucky enough to have this program available at the boys preschool for the last two years. We love reading with the kids and it's fun to get the different books each week. Many are bilingual reading books or multi-cultural tales so its a great opportunity for us to be exposed to new and different books than we would have probably not chosen during our library visit. The boys were each awarded a certificate of completion as well as a book bag full of books. We hope their love of reading with continue to grow into adulthood.
