"There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in
~Deepak Chopra

Raising A Reader is a child-driven program, that emcompasses early childhood educators, parents and librarians in a coordinated 'read aloud' effort.  Each week, children take home a red bag filled with four high quality, developmentally appropriate, multi-cultural children's books. Families are also introduced to the local public library.  Raising A Reader's mission is "to foster healthy brain development, parent-child bonding and early literacy skills critical for school success by engaging parents in a routine of daily 'book' cuddling' with their children from birth to five."  Raising A Reader brings literacy experiences home and teaches a love of books and reading.
