Read. Bond. Grow. aims to transform families into reading communities, empowering individuals to become lifelong learners and advocates for literacy. Learn how to read actively with your child.

A child’s first teacher is their caregiver. If you are a parent, grandparent, extended family member, foster parent, etc., you can have an amazing impact on the child in your life through reading.

Making time to slow down and establish a reading routine with your child is a unique opportunity to bond together. This special time allows children to connect with their caregiver, share their interests, and create a loving, nurturing experience.

Fostering a love of reading early in life is important. Reading together and connecting over books can break down barriers in education, bridge cultural divides, and help children be ready for kindergarten. 90% of a child’s brain architecture happens by age 5. Early language exposure through reading significantly affects the way language networks are built in the brain.
