raised by 2 people
Motheread/Fatheread Colorado equips educators, parents, and childcare professionals to engage children ages 0-8 in books and conversations to boost their early literacy learning and school-readiness.
Using an award-winning, evidence based curriculum, adults learn the value of children's books and how to use them to encourage active participation by the children as they learn vocabulary, concepts and early literacy skills.
Literacy is the key to connecting with previous and future generations. It empowers people to fully participate in their communities and to contribute to their cultures.
