Raising a Reader
Each week, with the help of volunteers and teachers, children bring home a bright red book bag filled with several high quality, culturally and linguistically appropriate books. The bags are exchanged each week so that over the course of a year, families will get the opportunity to read over 100 books together. Learn more about Raising A Reader ...
