Ensuring babies and young children have new, quality, culturally relevant books of their own that are mirrors and windows into their everyday lives and communities
Our cornerstone program R.E.A.D. My Stories offers economically vulnerable families an opportunity to choose and receive every month one new, quality, culturally relevant, FREE book with enrichment tips for each child in the household ages birth to five years old PLUS the opportunity to attend family reading playgroups.
In the spirit of social innovation, Read Early and Daily (R.E.A.D.)
has created an online/pop-up boutique children's bookstore,
R.E.A.D. Books, to help fund its programs. The revenue from
every book bought from R.E.A.D. Books will be used to buy a
new, quality, culturally relevant book for a child R.E.A.D. serves. Just remember this simple formula---buy a book, give a book.
