Take the #PledgeToRead

CELEBRATING READING AND IMPROVING LITERACY

The Reader’s Digest Foundation is proud to announce a two-year $500,000 grant to the Parent-Child Home Program that will kick off a national partnership to celebrate reading and improve children’s literacy. These readers below helped raise awareness with a simple snapshot of them reading to the children in their lives—you too can pledge to read for 30 minutes a day, each day, to help the children in your life.

MORE FROM THE PARENT-CHILD HOME PROGRAM

The Parent-Child Home Program is a proven early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model, that works one-on-one with families to help them discover the importance of reading and playing with their children while providing the skills and materials they need to prepare their children for school and life success. We are proud to partner with Reader’s Digest on the READ Together initiative. Please visit our website for recommendations on our favorite pre-school books and toys as well tip sheets filled with ways you can use the materials to build school readiness, spark conversations with your child, and expand upon the book with other literacy and numeracy activities.
