Express your love this Valentine’s Day by giving a child the gift of reading in your sweetheart’s name!
Most people hold dear memories of their parents reading a favorite book to them. Raising A Reader rotates beautiful, multicultural books into the homes of limited-income families, making it possible for parents to share books with their children every day.
Studies show that regular, interactive book-sharing fosters healthy brain development, parent-child bonding, and the early literacy skills that are essential for school success. Raising A Reader aims to close the achievement gap one child at a time through the simple, yet imperative, tradition of cuddling up with a good book.
On Valentine’s Day, your loved one will receive a touching e-card, letting her or him know about your thoughtful gift. In addition, we’ll individualize each book you’ve gifted with a lovely bookplate that will carry your Valentine’s name, and it will be included it in the Raising A Reader book rotation, where it can inspire countless families to share the joy of reading!
