Help me bring a love of reading to kids less fortunate than Juniper!

Kaela's Fundraising Page A Project of Read to a Child

The importance and power of reading aloud has taken on new meaning for me this year. At not even two years, it is crystal clear that my daughter Juniper associates being read to with love and attention. The few moments I take to sit down and read to her often represent the most direct and undistracted time I can offer her in a given day. As a result, she has already developed a positive association with books and can't get enough of them. Some of the most rewarding moments of motherhood are the times I hear her reviewing aloud to herself in free association the bits and pieces of her favorite books, one after the other, like a children's book medley. Or when I stop reading a given page and she is able to finish it herself because she's memorized the words.

I am so proud to be working with Read to a Child to bring this same simple yet powerful pleasure and privilege to as many children across the country as we can. We target those who most likely are not being read to at home, and research says that this makes them significantly less likely to spend time on welfare or in jail later in their lives. Please join me in helping to bring more than 1500 reading mentors to these kids throughout the country by donating today!
