Raising A Reader Empowers and Inspires Families to Read Together Every Day
What We Do
Our multiple book programs provide support, resources, and high-quality books – all in the families' home language – to children ages 0-5 and their parents. Our tow-generation parent outreach programs support kindergarten readiness and children and families' social and emotional health and well-being. These evidence-based programs are built on the foundational understanding that a child's brain is 90% developed by age five.

"We enjoy the new books each week. I like that there are many cultures and places in the world represented in your books. The books that you provide are ones that we wouldn't necessarily check out at the library, so we are exposed to new idea, language, and world views."
"We love the program. It has expanded our reading horizons and helped us spend more quality time together. We believe it has increased Oliver's enthusiasm for reading."
