"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
— Emilie Buchwald

All children should have a chance at success.



Reading with a young child is the single most important activity to prepare them for school. 
Starting at birth, we make books more accessible to families and encourage reading daily with their child. The first years of a child’s life are the most critical. A child's development during those years will determine much of what they will be capable of the remainder of their life. We believe reading with a child will establish a stronger bond in the home, help build a more advanced vocabulary, and provide the building blocks children need to grow into successful adults.
