Is your family a Read Aloud family yet? We hope you will make reading aloud to your child for at least 15 minutes every day part of your daily routine. We are a partner in a decade long campaign working to encourage every parent to read aloud to their child every day starting at birth. Why? Because reading aloud to your child is the single most important thing you can do to prepare your child for life long learning success. Our goal, with your help, is to have every child arrive at kindergarten ready to learn and to be prepared by third grade for the transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
