Challenge

Research shows that if children are not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade, it is unlikely that they will ever catch up. Early literacy for vulnerable children and families is crucial. When children have the support they need, they enter school ready to learn. When they do not, the academic deficits not only grow, but persist over their school careers.

Solution

RAR's mission is to engage caregivers in a routine of book sharing with their children from birth through age eight to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love of reading, and the literacy skills critical for school success.
This project will provide vital books, materials, family engagement, and early literacy support to 1600 children in high-need communities.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide vital materials and support to 2000 vulnerable U.S. families. By improving the language and literacy skills of children at risk of educational failure and strengthening parent-child relationships and family educational involvement, this program will have a far-reaching impact on children and families.
