There is still time...

Dear Friends,

There is still time to make additional yearend gifts to help children most at-risk of falling behind.

A gift of $100 will bring more than 100 books to children and countless resources to parents with children 0-8 years old. A gift of $35 will support the continuation of one child enrolled in Raising A Reader.

When you expose children to books beginning at birth, they will enter kindergarten ready to learn! During this holiday season, you can put books into the hands of children who need them most. Thank you for your continued support.

 Happy New Year!

Don't Leave Me Behind

Exposure to books before age 5 is critical.

Experts say part of the reason that low-income children left behind academically is because their vocabularies are more limited. Research shows that low-income children who are not exposed to books before age 5 enter kindergarten on average with a 30-million-word deficit compared to their more affluent peers. 

Because of generous donations from individuals like you, we are making strides in places like Detroit where we are partnering with the social services agency, Brilliant Detroit, to bring Raising A Reader to more than 100 children and their families.

Reading to children at birth is key to preparing them for future success, and we have more work to do if we want to bring Raising A Reader to more communities in 2018. Thank you for your continued commitment to early childhood literacy!
