Many thanks

Smart Start of Brunswick County’s Raising A Reader and Parents As Teachers programs would like to thank you for investing in Books for At-Risk Children in North Carolina.  Your donation will help to purchase books for children from zero to two.  Parents with young children were specifically targeted to participate in the program and have already viewed the Raising A Reader Orientation DVD to understand the value of reading to children beginning at birth and “book cuddling” with their child. 

Evidence shows that the earlier children are introduced to books, the more likely they are to be lifelong readers.  Presently in Brunswick County, North Carolina, Raising A Reader serves children ages 3 and 4, we can now extend this wonderful opportunity to the youngest members of our community who have limited exposure to literacy experiences.  Our sincere thanks.
