Why should we participate?
We're so glad you asked!
Books for your child
When you enroll in our programs, you'll receive quality children's books for your baby, toddler, or preschooler. Books are powerful tools for conversations, learning, building reading skills, and fostering important social emotional skills like empathy. We'll use these books during our programs and your child will keep them to build their home library.
You and your child will learn together
Each week, we'll share books, songs, and activities that get your child excited about books and learning and foster essential early reading skills like comprehension, phonological awareness, and vocabulary. As you complete each early learning module, you'll gain knowledge and specific strategies to share books and literacy activities in effective ways that ensure your child develops the skills they need to be a thriving reader and learner.
You'll get great tools and resources
You'll gain access to our live digital learning space and a learning community with other families. You'll also get connected to great tools like the Make Way for Books App, which allow you to continue learning on the go and share books for free directly on your phone or tablet.
