Raising A Reader

RAR's mission is to engage caregivers in a routine of book sharing with their children from birth through age eight to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love of reading, and the literacy skills critical for school success.
Build A Classroom Library for At-Risk Children
 
This project will build classroom libraries for Raising A Reader sites allowing children and families access to more high-quality books, including titles and genres not found in typical school libraries. Classroom libraries will match the students' needs and include bilingual, wordless, touch & feel, STEM books, and more!
Special Needs Books for 1000 Kinders
 
This project will help us bring a collection of books featuring special needs characters and themes to children and families across the country.

Books will go into schools and agencies across the country and support families of all abilities to encourage a more inclusive society.
