Why Your Support is Critical

Challenge:

61% of children who live in poverty have no books in their homes. Educational Testing Service, 1999. America's Smallest School: The Family

Solution:

Each week children in the Raising A Reader program take home 2-4 different books, exposing them to approximately 100 high quality children's books each year.

Challenge:

When family involvement increases from kindergarten through third grade, children’s literacy achievement increases. Dearing, Kreider, Simpkins, & Weiss, 2006

Solution:

Our evaluations consistently show over a 30% increase in parent-child reading at home after “Read Aloud” sessions.

Challenge:

Families with struggling readers are often unaware of the power of school and community connections.

Solution:

Through the program families understand the support libraries can provide and learn to access community resources.
