When & Where
Raising A Reader MA
Raising A Reader MA is an evidence-based early literacy program dedicated to helping families of young children (newborn to age 5) develop, practice, and maintain habits of reading with their children at home. Our work, which both increases access to books and offers families tools for strengthening the culture of reading at home, is driven by 25 years of research that shows the single most significant impact on a child's lifelong success is being regularly read to by their parents or other primary adult caregiver before starting kindergarten.
